“You need to pay attention when you experience foot pain or soreness because it means something is not functioning properly,” said Dr. Bannerjee. “ Around a quarter of all the bones in your body are in your feet, not including the joints, muscles and tendons, and they all have to work together to keep you moving without discomfort.”

Dr. Bannerjee will address a number of topics related to foot health including keeping your feet and ankles healthy during exercise, and common foot ailments such as sprains, tendinitis, bunions, arthritis, and sore feet.

The event will be held Thursday, September 20 from 12:00 till 1:00 pm, in the Hospital’s Basement Conference Room. The number of attendees will be limited to allow for informal discussion and audience questions, so RSVPs are requested. To reserve a place, please contact Celia Kruse de la Rosa at 707.935.5257 or
