'Free your Feet' Event a Success

UNC faculty and staff members held a free foot assessment and shoe fitting on Nov. 17 at the UNC Physical Therapy clinic in Hillsborough. Seventy people attended the event, which was open to families at no cost.

The Free your Feet Project is a joint program between the UNC Division of  Physical Therapy Faculty Clinic, North Carolina Physical Therapy Association and FootCentric that seeks to alleviate the financial burden of therapeutic footwear and medical assessment for families in need.

Pat Pande, a physical therapist at the UNC Division of Physical Therapy Faculty Clinic and Mike McMorris, assistant director of UNC Physical Therapy’s Hillsborough clinic and assistant professor in the Division of Physical Therapy, are quoted in an article in The News of Orange County.
