Orthofeet, Northvale, New Jersey, announced a partnership with the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) to develop a grassroots educational campaign to promote foot health for adults with diabetes.
“Our alliance with the AADE supports our corporate mission to help adults with diabetes maintain their mobility and lead healthy, active lives,” said Steve Wasik, CEO of Orthofeet. “Diabetes educators are on the front lines of caring for diabetes patients and are uniquely suited to help prevent common foot health complications that may compromise quality of life for those patients.”
The Orthofeet educational curriculum was developed under the guidance of Dennis Janisse, CPed, Orthofeet’s director of scientific affairs, in collaboration with the AADE. The campaign is designed to “educate the educators” on the role of daily foot care and therapeutic footwear in maintaining mobility. Orthofeet will provide educators with resources to teach healthy foot care practices to their patients at hospitals, senior centers, and other institutions.
