Foot care seminar for women

April 2, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Thu, 04/25/2013 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Weatherford Regional Medical Center (WRMC) will host a free Healthy Woman dinner and seminar on from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, at the First United Methodist Church located at 301 South Main Street in Weatherford, Texas.

Feet support the weight of your body, so it’s important to keep them in excellent health. Proper care can help you achieve and maintain healthy feet and an active lifestyle. Join Healthy Woman to learn important foot care tips from Dr. Jayme Cornwell, Podiatrist, just in time for sandal season.

“With new shoe trends and online shopping growing in popularity there is a greater temptation to purchase, keep, and wear shoes that may look fashionable, but do not fit appropriately,” says Dr. Cornwell. “As a result, women especially are at risk for wearing shoes that are not appropriate for their inherited foot shape or size. This puts women at a high risk for problems associated with corns, bunions, hammertoes and other deformities, that ultimately may require surgery to correct.” The evening will include a light dinner provided by Schlotzsky’s Deli, door prizes, vendor booths, and a sandal sale by Belk.

Anyone interested in attending this free event can register online at www.WeatherfordRegional.com/HealthyWoman or call Nadia Nazeer, Healthy Woman Coordinator at 817-599-1699 for more information.
