AdventHealth Education Series: Treatment Options for Diabetic Wounds

N.C., AdventHealth Education Series: Treatment Options for Diabetic Wounds

 

Hendersonville, NC (December 2, 2019) — Nearly 10% of the U.S. population is living with diabetes. While this disease affects the entire body, in many cases the impact on the skin is a first sign that a person has diabetes. When you have diabetes, it's vital to treat foot injuries right away. Even minor wounds can turn serious, which can lead to amputation if you don’t care for them quickly and thoroughly.

AdventHealth is committed to whole-person care – body, mind and spirit. That promise to provide you with high-quality health care includes sharing vital knowledge to empower people to feel whole through its FREE education series.  Because we care for you and your loved ones, we provide free education that will help keep you healthy. Take advantage of this opportunity to put the best you forward! 

 

On December 18, the community is invited to join AdventHealth Medical Group Wound Care Physicians, Demetri Poulis, MD, FACS and Frederick Veser, MD for a free lunch and learn event to learn about treatment options for diabetic wounds, from debridement to hyperbaric medicine, plus tips for avoiding diabetes-related wounds.
