Tomah Health offering free foot care clinics

Monroe County residents who suffer from foot health issues got some free care at Tomah Health on Friday.

The Tomah Health Community Foundation presented a $2,500 check to Viterbo University. The donation provides funding for free foot care clinics conducted by Viterbo graduate nurses.

The clinics called ‘Sole Providers’ offer treatment with state-of-the-art equipment to trim, clip nails, and remove corns and calluses.

Organizers say these clinics have always had overwhelming participation.

“They’re going to be serving an excess of 200 residents in our area,” said President of the Tomah Health Community Foundation. “Many of these services are not covered by Medicare, and this donation allows these individuals that are coming in today to take care of their feet.”

No future dates for the clinics have been set, but organizers say they hope to provide the clinics on a bi-monthly basis.
