The OPMA is pleased to respond to the APMA initiative around Diabetes Month. The APMA runs an annual ‘KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF” diabetic foot health awareness campaign.
The OPMA had planned its own November is Diabetes Month public education postings every Wednesday, but has also jumped on board with the APMA to raise the profile of Diabetic Foot Health issues through our own version of the campaign.
The KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF campaign for Ontario will be “public” through the OPMA website and twitter, but also will be publicized by OPMA members.
Four pairs of Diabetic socks to be distributed weekly over the four weeks /dates indicated during November.
