The next JRMC U program will offer education about care of the feet including hammertoes, blisters, bunions and more.

"JRMC U: Happy Feet" is set for 11 a.m., Thursday, April 13. The event will help people understand why healthy feet are vital to overall health. Attendees do not need to be TRAC members to attend.

“Feet are the foundation,” said podiatrist/foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Rachael Renschler of Jamestown Regional Medical Center. “Pain may indicate something more. We want to help people understand their feet and how to care for them.”

Renschler practices alongside fellow podiatrist/foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kayla Emter.

“We hope to help people understand their options,” Renschler said. “Whether it is choosing the best shoe, how to do special stretches or how our medical center can help — we hope people walk away with information that supports them and their families.”


Emter and Renschler are members of the orthopedics team. That team includes orthopedic surgeons Drs. Michael T. Dean and Timothy Volk as well as orthopedic nurse practitioner Crystal Krapp and physician assistant Patrick Walter.

JRMC is collaborating with Two Rivers Activity Center to offer monthly opportunities to learn from local providers about common health issues.

Renschler said she hopes to answer questions regarding at-home remedies, as well as medications and surgical options.

Common questions people ask are: “What’s normal?” and “When do I see a doctor?” Individuals can ask questions privately and in advance at

The event is free of charge and includes a light lunch.
