The White Sock Campaign – Honoring & Educating

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is one of the most challenging issues we face not only in wound care but in healthcare in general because oxygen is needed to continue to nourish every inch of our bodies and without oxygen cells … tissues, digits, and limbs do not survive.

PAD Awareness is a way to both educate more people on the importance of a healthy circulatory system and the benefit of eating healthy and exercising to keep that circulatory system healthy and also to honor those who have lost a leg due to PAD.    This is why the Save A Leg Save A Life Foundation (SALSAL) has promoted the “White Sock Campaign” … so that we can educate and honor.

“I am proud to be a part of an organization that is proactive in both honoring and educating … an organization who is filled with wonderful people who really truly care,” states Rebecca Sayre, Program Director for the Wound Care Center at Speare Memorial Hospital.   “This initiative really provides an opportunity for the whole hospital and community to get involved.”
