At noon on Friday, December 13, 2013, Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare’s (FSLH) Central New York (CNY) Diabetes Education Program is offering a free "Knock Your Socks Off!" foot (podiatry) clinic for people with diabetes. The event will take place at the CNY Diabetes Education Program office located on the 4th floor of the Faxton Campus of FSLH, 1676 Sunset Avenue, Utica.

An area podiatrist will conduct a brief educational seminar followed by a personal foot exam. For more information or to register, please call CNY Diabetes at (315) 624-5620.

Proper footcare is especially critical for people with diabetes because they are prone to foot problems such as a loss of feeling in their feet, changes in the shape of their feet and foot ulcers or sores that do not heal.

Central New York Diabetes Education Program is a cooperative effort of FSLH and St. Elizabeth Medical Center.
