Preventing Foot Problems

63 French King Highway,
Greenfield, MA 01301

FootCare by Nurses will hold two free informational sessions about preventing foot problems and how to care for them on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at their office 63 French King Highway #7 in Greenfield, the first session will be held from 9-11 a.m. and the second from 12-2 p.m. Both sessions will include discussions about the kinds of discomfort and pain that our feet can suffer from improper shoe and sock fit, as well as managing feet that are affected by health problems like diabetes, cancer, and chronic illnesses. While walk-ins are welcome, an RSVP by calling 413.367.8369 or emailing contact@footcarebynurses.net is appreciated. Attendees are encouraged to bring their shoes and concerns. No condition or worry about discomfort should be ignored.

Kate Clayton-Jones, founder of FootCare by Nurses, holds a Masters in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and is certified as a foot care nurse through the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) and the American Association of Foot Care Nurses (AAFCN). Kate created FootCare by Nurses because in her nursing career she has seen how many patients suffer not only discomfort but pain related to their foot health, that limits activities and can lead to more serious health problems. Kate says “Feet are very complicated with over 26 bones and more than 100 muscles, ligaments, and tendons that can be hurt or damaged. They are also what the rest of the body stands on”

Kate is an engaging international speaker with a lovely British accent. You will walk away from this event knowing much more about helping your feet be healthy, happy and comfortable, no matter where you are in life. Appropriate for all ages, parents who are concerned about the health of their kid’s feet are also welcome.
