Griffin Health to Host Comprehensive Foot Wellness Clinic

By Christian Meagher on 2/15/2021

Griffin Health will host a Comprehensive Foot Wellness Clinic on Friday, Feb. 26 from 9 a.m. – noon at Griffin Hospital.

Registrants will receive a detailed biomechanical foot examination by board-certified pedorthists from STRIDE® Pedorthic Center in Middlebury. This examination can identify the causes of an individual's foot pain, the injuries to which they are most susceptible, and develop orthotics to help relieve foot ailments.

Additionally, staff members from Griffin’s Comprehensive Wound Healing Center will be available to help diagnose potential diabetic foot problems and recommend treatments.

Event registration and the diabetic foot screening are free, but interested individuals should bring their insurance information to participate in the biomechanical foot examination and orthotic fitting.

Spaces are limited. Contact Liza Leuallen at lleuallen@griffinhealth.org or 203-732-7574 for more information or to make a reservation.
