Free dinner focusing on arthritis
Dr. John “Chip” Rowe will speak on ways to preserve joint function, mobility and quality of life at a free community arthritis-education dinner from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at Ozarks Medical Center Parkway Center in West Plains.
The dinner is free, but reservations are required and can be made by calling 417-257-6793.
Rowe is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon whose practice includes treating arthritis of the hips, knees and shoulders. The dinner comes as the Arthritis Foundation estimates that about 54 million adults have doctor-diagnosed arthritis.
