A new program in Kewaunee County might help you or someone you know avoid a foot or leg amputation. There’s a new service being provided to the diabetic and elderly communities in Kewaunee County. Starting on January 14th, a foot care clinic will be provided once per month at the Kewaunee County Public Health Department in Kewaunee. Cindy Kinnard, the head the Kewaunee County Department of Public Health, says it’s essential for diabetic people to get good foot care. Kinnard commented on the importance for elderly people to not do their own foot care.
The foot care clinics will be held every second Monday of the month and the cost is $25. Appointments are necessary and can be scheduled by calling the Kewaunee County Public Health Department.
