Porterville Recorder - - COMMUNITY/FAVORITES -

This Septem­ber, dur­ing PAD (Pe­riph­eral Artery Disease) Aware­ness Month, the Sierra View Med­i­cal Center Wound Heal­ing De­part­ment, pic­tured, is ask­ing physi­cians, clin­i­cians, and staff across the coun­try to par­tic­i­pate in The Save a Leg, Save a Life (SALSAL) Foun­da­tion's White Sock Cam­paign. The goal is to raise aware­ness of PAD and early de­tec­tion through one sim­ple tool: a white sock. The white sock sym­bol­izes the many pa­tients with late-stage PAD who have had an am­pu­ta­tion due to de­layed treat­ment.

It's a Snap runs pe­ri­od­i­cally in The Porter­ville Recorder. Read­ers are en­cour­aged to drop off pic­tures at the news­pa­per, 115 E. Oak Ave., or email them to recorder@porter­villere­ Pic­tures of sig­nif­i­cant events are wel­come. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact The Recorder at 784-5000, Ext. 1043.
