Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine Physicians Offer Foot and Ankle Services at DeWeese Health CenterPosted Feb. 24, 2014
The Cleveland Foot and Ankle Clinic, the teaching clinic for Kent State University’s College of Podiatric Medicine, is now seeing patients at the DeWeese Health Center on the Kent Campus from 9-11 a.m. on Wednesdays.
“The Cleveland Foot and Ankle Clinic is excited to partner with Kent State’s DeWeese Health Center to provide foot and ankle care to staff, faculty and students of Kent State University,” says Dr. Bryan Caldwell, interim dean of Kent State’s College of Podiatric Medicine.
The podiatric physicians, who are faculty at the college, treat a wide array of issues dealing with the foot and ankle, including ankle sprains and strains, foot and ankle fractures, heel pain, bunions, ingrown toenails and more.
“This will be a great benefit to our students, faculty and staff, who will now have convenient access to a podiatrist without having to travel off campus,” says Dr. Angela DeJulius, director of University Health Services. “The student health insurance plan, as well as the university’s Medical Mutual and Anthem plans for employees, is accepted.”
Founded in 1916, the College of Podiatric Medicine recently became affiliated with Kent State in July 2012. The college is located in Independence, Ohio, and has an enrollment of more than 400 students.
Carla Ronnebaum, director of enrollment management at the College of Podiatric Medicine, is excited about the possibilities that the recent partnership can bring.
“The College of Podiatric Medicine is relatively new to Kent, and we are excited about potential affiliations with other departments like athletic training, public health, nursing, biology and more,” says Ronnebaum.
