University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 and 2021 Foot and Nail Care Community Clinic because of COVID-19.

The hope is that the twice-a-year clinics can resume in 2022.

For more than 20 years, the clinic has served as a training opportunity for nurses, allowing them to complete the required clinical hours to earn their foot and nail care certification. The clinic also provided a needed service to the community for free.

This decision to cancel upcoming clinics was made to protect the safety of the nurses who travel to Eau Claire from throughout the country to take the course, as well as the community members who receive the foot and nail care services.

If you or someone you know need foot and nail care, the Aging and Disability Resource Center can help you find the care you need.
