World Foot Health Awareness Month

With the World Foot Health Awareness Month, the FP-IFP wants to increase the awareness of the importance of foot health among the general public and other health professionals.

2016 WFHAM topic – Cancer: Watch Your Step

WFHAM POSTER FIP-IFP 30The 2016 WFHAM theme – Cancer watch your step — is a challenging one. This theme focuses on conditions that people with cancer and in treatment for cancer may deal with. By reaching out to this specific population, we hope to raise the awareness how this condition can affect the foot and what needs to be considered.
The WHFAM committee is convince that this very actual focus is probably not the most popular but does affect numerous patients that we encounter every day in our practice. Being able to answer their questions, to raise the awareness of the impact of their treatment can help the patient to better face it and be able to receive the needed support.
