This medical education event will look at improving foot care and preventing ulceration through appropriate care, advice management and timely referral to the appropriate care providers. Spa technicians are key partners in the timely referral process. Although not medical professionals, spa & beauty professionals often have the opportunity to handle feet quite frequently, and if trained appropriately can play an integral part in timely referral and prevention of ulcers and other foot complications.
