Topic: An Educational Session on Arthritis Foot & Ankle Pain and Podiatry Care
Please join us for an educational and informative session on how arthritis can result in overall foot and ankle pain, including changes in bone structure and possible deformities. Most adults with arthritis may or may not fully understand the importance of foot and ankle care, protective gears to help alleviate chronic pain, and footwear interventions for arthritis foot pain. Our guest speaker, Dr. Kathryne Rupley, is a local podiatrist and wound care specialist in the Fresno community and works with both arthritis and diabetic patients. She has over 15 years of professional experience, implements patient-centered approach to care needs, and is well respected in the podiatry medical field. She will give us a general overview of the effects of arthritis foot and ankle pain, interventions, and discuss appropriate footwear to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. You won't want to miss this educational opportunity!
Refreshments will be served.
