Community Chapters are the primary method of outreach for The Save a Leg, Save a Life Foundation. Community Chapters are a forum wherein hometown medical professionals, care givers, and patients can gather together to learn more about all available treatment and management options to prevent amputation. Community Chapters organize and participate in local events and provide free PAD and Diabetes screenings to the general public. Additionally, Community Chapter members participate in the Foundation's national conference and regional meetings in which world class and cutting edge medical education is presented to physicians, nurses, and health care providers from around the country to assist them in learning the most up-to-date information possible to improve patient outcomes.
The Save A Leg, Save A Life Foundation's White Sock pin is more than a visible sign of SALSAL membership. It is a symbol of SALSAL solidarity with patients who suffer from leg wounds secondary to diabetes, peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.) and trauma which threaten to result in amputation.
The White Sock pin (illustrated above) is available with a $25 membership donation to the Foundation. Simply register for membership under the membership drop down menu.
