Physicians are Out and About with Doc Talk Live Lecture Series

Posted: August 2, 2019

NorthBay physicians — experts on joint replacement, ankle and foot care and vascular disease — are fanning out into the community to share their knowledge of health issues as part of NorthBay Healthcare’s Doc Talk Live program.

Brandi Upton, M.D., vascular surgeon with NorthBay Healthcare, shares some of the signs and symptoms of vascular disease, as well as some prevention tips during lectures from 3 to 4 p.m. on Aug. 7 at NorthBay VacaValley Wellness Center, 1020 Nut Tree Road, in Vacaville and 10 to 11 a.m. on Aug. 29 at the Green Valley Administration Center. Guests will hear how peripheral arterial disease (PAD) affects about one in 20 Americans, many of whom are men over the age of 60. RSVP at NorthBay.org/SimpleTests.

Andrew Brooks, M.D., who offers hip and knee replacement surgery, as well as partial knee replacement through the NorthBay Joint Replacement Program, will discuss patient options on Aug. 21 at GVAC. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by a lecture from 6 to 7 pm., saving time for questions from the audience. RSVP at NorthBay.org/Joint.  

Kevin Miller, D.P.M., NorthBay podiatrist, will discuss how slips, trips and falls can affect our feet and ankles, and what can be done to get you up and walking again, from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Sept. 18 at NorthBay VacaValley Wellness Center. RSVP at NorthBay.org/Footpain.

There is no cost to attend the Doc Talk Live events, but reservations are requested. For more information visit www.NorthBay.org. or email Events@NorthBay.org.
