The 60+ and Healthy Clinics, provided by Wright County Public Health, provides foot care for the senior citizens of Wright County. Toenail trimming is offered to meet the needs of those seniors who have a health condition such as diabetes or are unable to trim toenails themselves. Blood pressures will be checked if needed and as time allows. The 60+ and Healthy Clinics will be charging a $15 fee for foot care services. This fee is necessary because the clinics are no longer being funded by grant money. However, if you are unable to pay the fee, you will not be turned away. If you have any questions, please ask clinic staff or call Wright County Public Health at 1-800-362-3667 or 763-682-7456.
