Recently, we were invited along to give a presentation to the Osteoporosis Society Support Group. We set up and delivered a bespoke presentation to the attendees ensuring we made it relevant to their condition and offered a free foot health check to all. We spent a lovely afternoon providing foot health care education, offering tips for self help as well as answering any particular questions or concerns the members had.
This week Jo Shapter has been away looking at the microbiological implications affecting our feet. It was an intensive week away but well worth it and she returns with a wealth of knowledge to aid our work.
Jo took swabs from her own feet and the surrounding environment and incubated them for 48 hours after transferring the swabs onto Agar plates. Below are some images of what she found under the microscope! Through these important sessions we have been able to pledge to become antibiotic guardians.
