Claudia Mathurin is a wonderful and kind-hearted woman who believes she is in the right field. She is a certified podiatrist employed at the Saint Lucia Diabetes and Hypertension Association. Mathurin fell in love with foot care working with the Saint Lucia Diabetes Project which came to Saint Lucia once every two years.
"Once you have diabetes you should come and get a foot check, even if your feet look okay. You don't want to come when I can't do anything to help you. I've seen people with nice [looking] feet, but after you've run all your tests, you realize that this is just a disaster waiting to happen," the podiatrist said.
