Catholic Health Offers Program on Treating Diabetic Wounds
Wednesday, June 5, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Salvatore’s Italian Gardens
6461 Transit Rd.
Nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor circulation are common conditions associated with diabetes. In some cases, these conditions can put diabetics at risk for developing hard-to-heal wounds on their legs and feet that can lead to infections and, in extreme cases, amputation. Through early detection and treatment, however, these wounds can often be healed without long-term complications.
Join wound care specialist, Jill Eysaman-Walker, DO, for dinner and a presentation on diabetic ulcers. She and a panel of wound experts, featuring Lee Ruotsi, MD; William Lagaly, DO; and Mary Ellen Fadel, NP, will provide information on diabetic wound care, including prevention techniques, early warning signs, and various treatment options, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
“Diabetic Wound Prevention and Treatment” is open to the public. Guests are invited to attend one free Catholic Health community program per calendar year. After that, the cost is $20 and includes a meal.
Space is limited and reservations are required.
