The Nassau County Veterans Services Agency (VSA) announced a new pilot program in conjunction with the Northport VA Medical Center’s Veterans Outreach Program to provide veterans with local podiatry services.
County Executive Ed Mangano said, “A mobile podiatry unit will be brought each Thursday to Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, thereby reducing the number of trips our veterans need to make to the Veterans Hospital in Northport. Doctors are able to follow up with patients and provide necessary podiatry care when needed by veterans. Simple podiatry check-ups can often avoid infection and hospitalization.”
The VA Mobile Podiatry Unit will be positioned within Eisenhower Park, Parking Field 2, in East Meadow. The program began on Thursday, Jan. 7, and will continue each week thereafter from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., by appointment only.
Any veteran interested in receiving podiatry care through this program must be registered with the VSA. Call 631-261-4400 to schedule an appointment.
