Your Feet Could Be at Risk! FREE Diabetic Foot Screening Clinic Everyone Welcome! WHEN: Saturday May 17, 2014 8:30am – 12:00pm.WHERE: Reba Brown Senior Residence, 1450 South 50th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19143.

Did you know that if you are diabetic, you should get your feet checked at least once a year?

A great turnout of people stopped by our free Diabetic Foot Screening Clinic to assess the risk of their feet. The clinic was staffed with nurses who are trained in wound & diabetic care.

We also checked blood sugar and provided everyone with educational advice, recommendations for proper foot care and resources for the community to take home. Of course we answered many questions residents had.

Deer Meadows Home Health and Support Services’ 2nd annual Diabetic Foot Clinic at Reba Brown was a huge success. We had a great turnout with people from the community and Residents from Reba Brown attending the foot clinic. We are very thankful to all of our volunteers and our sponsors National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy, OSNovation, Smith&Nephew, Life Choice Hospice, Select Data, WCEI, Always Best Care, Superior Printing and Engraving and McKesson Medical. We look forward to serving our healthcare community in the future.
