Local Wound Healing Center Joins Healogics, Inc. to Raise Awareness of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Waterbury, CT (October 14, 2014) – Saint Mary’s Wound Healing Center, a member of the Healogics network, is participating in the Healogics National Diabetes Campaign, October 27th through 31st. One of nearly 600 Healogics managed centers, Saint Mary’s Wound Healing Center offers advanced therapies to patients suffering from chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers. Program directors across the nation will dedicate this week to visiting local physician offices and providing education to help staff members identify diabetic patients with or at risk of ulcers of the lower extremity.

There are approximately 29 million people living with diabetes in the United States. Of those, about 15 percent will develop an ulcer of the lower extremity. Left untreated, these ulcers can impair quality of life and may lead to amputation. Early detection and intervention can help to mitigate the possibility of limb loss.
