Did you miss our recent open house event? Take a look at what went on at our new midtown Tuscaloosa office. We opened our doors to welcome the general public in learning about foot care services available in West Alabama. This became a great opportunity to educate the community on foot health. Now, you can read on and learn about some foot care solutions (and fun party ideas) as we share some highlights from the event.
We set up our reception area with a popcorn bar and sparkling lemonade stand. The popcorn bar had plain sea salted popcorn, kettle corn, and drizzled dark cocoa popcorn.
Sparkling Lemonade Recipe: Mix 1 can of lemonade concentrate with 1 liter of club soda.
In one treatment room we had patient education literature, common foot procedure descriptions, and information on foot care products available at our office. Visit our Foot Products Page to see what we currently offer.
In another treatment room, we had information on proper shoe gear, heel pain treatment options, and samples of foot orthotics for adults and children.
IT’S TIME TO WELCOME OUR OPEN HOUSE GUESTS!
It wouldn’t be fun without a giveaway. The prize was a Fitbit Flex wristband.
This was a great opportunity to get to know Tuscaloosa’s newest foot doctor and ask her questions about foot care. Dr. Rosemarie Caillier is passionate about patient education to help build a healthy community.
We had something fun and educational for the kids as well. They were able to take home a professional footprint impression that shows their arch type. Knowing your arch type helps in selecting proper shoes and to know about associated foot problems.
Parents were able to learn about the low arch (pronated) foot type and the high arch (supinated) foot type. You can read more about proper footwear and arch type in our blog: Selecting the Proper Shoes According to Your Foot Type.
Kids had fun being in our kids area learning about shoes and feet. Of course, they were always ready for a popcorn snack!
It was a worthwhile event for us to share with the West Alabama community the services available at our podiatry office. If you were not able to “pop” by our open house event and need a foot doctor in Tuscaloosa, be sure to give our office a call. Dr. Rosemarie Caillier will be happy to help care for your feet.
