    Tuesday, May 21
    Presented by Kelley A. Gillroy, D.P.M.of Midwestern University Foot and Ankle Clinic and Arizona School of Podiatric Medicine. Poor circulation in the legs is more than just an inconvenience. It can be a sign of a more serious condition which requires medical intervention. Join Dr. Gillroy as she takes you through the symptoms of Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) and Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), how the conditions can be dianosed, and the latest treatments that help offset symptoms and restore quality of life.
  • The Mercury Syndrome: The Need to Run
    Tuesday, June 18
    Presented by Ruchi Bhargava, Ph.D. of Midwestern University Multispecialty Clinic. Running is not just a physical exercise. Most avid runners will tell you that it is also an exercise of the mind. Dr. Bhargava will explore the relationship between the mind and body for runners and why running can become more than a simple workout. Topics discussed will range from the psychology of casual running to "ultra marathons" of 30 miles or more. Dr Bhargava's special guest will be Alex Kaine, winner of the Tahoe Rim Trail 50-Mile Endurance Run.
