Cheers to thirty years, and thirty more!"

For the finally 30 days of the celebration, T-BONES/Cactus Jack's will be offering special promotions including Sam Adams beer specials and a number of prize giveaways.

Speare's Wound Care Center Spotlights Diabetes Awareness

PLYMOUTH — The staff of the Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Speare Memorial Hospital is hosting an Open House on Tuesday, October 28, from 4:30-6:30 p.m., to highlight Diabetes Awareness.

November is American Diabetes Month and the health care experts at The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Speare Memorial Hospital, a member of the Healogics™ network, are drawing attention to the fact that every hour seven people across the country lose a foot or leg to the disease, which is the leading cause of lower-limb amputations not caused by accidents.

"Diabetic patients are confronted with multiple challenges in the healing process. Not only is their circulation diminished, but they also have an impaired ability to sense the earliest stages of foot injury due to disease-associated nerve damage," said Scott Covington, MD, FACS, CHWS, Executive Vice President, Medical Affairs for Healogics, Inc., a network of academic medical centers, hospitals and professionals committed to advancing wound healing and addressing the problem of chronic wounds.

For more information on the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, contact The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Speare Memorial Hospital by calling 603-481-8780.
