Revere, MA – Rep. Jessica Giannino and the Massachusetts Foot & Ankle Society hosted a Mobility Health Forum at the Revere Senior Center. This free foot screening and educational event took place in late April and included information and screenings from Dr. Emily Curley, DPM, and Dr. David Alper, DPM. This was a free event which invited residents to learn more about foot health as well as receive free foot screenings.
“I’ve enjoyed seeing patients once a month at the Rosetti-Cowan Senior Center. This new event was a great opportunity to not only provide free foot screenings but have a discussion about common foot ailments people experience as they age. I appreciate the work Deb Peczka DiGuilio , Director of Elder Services, does every day; she is always bringing something new to the residents of Revere.” said Dr. Emily Curley, DPM
“As a Board member of the American Podiatric Medical Association, I am always asked about the best ways to educate people and answer their questions and concerns about their foot health. In-person events like this, where we can talk to people about common foot ailments and provide a free foot screening , is one of the best ways to answer their concerns and give them information that will help them help themselves to a healthier and safer life.” said Dr. David Alper, DPM “I thank Representative Jessica Giannino for her efforts in making this event occur, and commend her for caring enough to bring this valuable information to her constituents.”
“I am so thankful that Dr. Curley and Dr. Alper took the time to visit and work with our seniors in Revere,” said Representative Giannino (D-Revere) “This event was a great opportunity for our seniors to learn more about important self-examinations and early warning signs to pay attention to regarding their foot and ankle health. Thank you Deb Peczka for providing the space and resources that made this event possible.”
