The Harriet Tubman Foot Clinic has served our friends on the street for well over a decade. We are a collaborative care clinic in Atlanta, GA, blending herbal and conventional therapies. For many of our homeless and marginally employed patients with no alternate means of transport, foot pain or infection can drastically affect their daily prospects and access to life’s necessities. The foot services we offer not only address foot specific ailments, but also provide whole body health benefits such as stress reduction, immune support, pain relief, and emotional support. In this class we will explore the protocols and remedies we find effective at our clinic and hopefully help those of you considering offering this much needed work!
