Sierra Nevada Memorial offers free foot screening Saturday

Submitted to The Union

Join Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital’s (SNMH) Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center as it presents a free community foot screening event 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, as a reminder that a foot screening can detect and tell you a lot about your health.

The American Diabetes Association recommends semi-annual foot screenings for diabetics. If you have diabetes, neuropathy, a foot abnormality, or vascular disease, you are encouraged to attend this free foot screening. Visual foot examinations will be conducted by Dr. Stephen Latter, Dr. Kennan Runte and Dr. Susan Ryan, with referral for follow-up appointment, if necessary.

“Our Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center’s team of experts takes pride in working together to provide a compassionate, patient-centered place to heal difficult wounds,” says Debbie Plass, SNMH’s vice president of marketing and business development.

This event is also a good time to better understand the benefits of wound care therapy with hyperbaric oxygen chamber demonstrations, take a tour of the center and meet with professional experts who treat and care for chronic wounds — from diabetic wounds to an acute thermal burn injury.

Reservations are recommended for this event; space is limited. Walk-in appointments will be limited. For more information or to reserve your place for a free foot screening, call (530) 272-8619.
