Bruce Blank, DPM with diabetic children, celebrating Halloween for 19th straight year.

Dr. Bruce Blank, a podiatrist in St. Clairsville, has given diabetic children, specifically diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, a unique way of celebrating Halloween. For the last 19 years, he and his wife Diane have hosted an Annual Halloween Candy Exchange Party for Kids with Diabetes. This unique party gives children an opportunity to go trick or treating and exchange their candy for more healthy snacks and small gifts while meeting other children and families dealing with diabetes.

The children participated in games and the entertainment included a visit by some animals from the Oglebay Good Zoo including Maisy the skunk. The party was held at Achilles Foot and Ankle Surgery, PC.

Bruce Blank, DPM has been board certified with the ABPM since 1993.
