Goals & Objectives

Overall goal is to prevent foot problems from starting. Staff often supply free socks and footwear to individuals who have diabetes and aren’t able to afford these items.
Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet and 30% of our population has diabetes or pre-diabetes. Even a small cut could have serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder to heal an injury or resist infection.
