Savannah, Georgia, June 5, 2014 – Antioch Foot & Ankle Group continues its commitment to prevent diabetes and to enhance the overall good health of citizens of Savannah and the Low Country. Antioch seeks to accomplish this through partnerships. Recently, Antioch reached out to Ola Raymond, retired nurse and one of the founding members of the Black Nurses Association. Ms. Raymond recruited two more retired nurses, Phyllis Garrison and Phyllis Loyd.

On Thursday, the retired nurses conducted free blood pressure checks for the members of ILA Local 1414, while the Antioch Medical Team provided information on being at risk for Type 2 diabetes, healthy eating tips and physical fitness recommendations for ILA Local 1414. For those ILA members that are diabetic, the team talked about foot complications associated with diabetes and how they can be prevented. The team also talked with members about other foot conditions associated with working long hours on your feet and ways to relieve the pain associated with tired, aching feet.

The nurses and the Antioch Team stressed the importance of overall good health. The ILA members were encouraged to see their primary care physicians and to take good care of their feet. The team left the workers with the message, Antioch wants to be a “Blessing To Your Feet”.
