Gait and Balance Analysis
8:30-10 am on Monday, June 17, and Tuesday, June 18. Gurnee Centre Club, 1405 Hunt Club Road, Gurnee. Our physical therapists can tell a lot about you, just by the way you walk. Spend a few minutes on our Gait Rite electronic gait analysis mat while we analyze 16 facets of your gait. This tool is often used by elite athletes looking to improve performance, but also can identify those at risk for falling and injury. Gait changes also can be a sign of other health issues, making this prevention tool even more important. Participants will receive results and recommendations on the day of the screening, with results shared with your physician. This program is open to any adult who can walk unassisted. This program is free but registration is required. Call 800-323-8622 and use Code 5N33.
Golf Injuries: Play it Safe
Tuesday, June 18, 7 pm, Libertyville Centre Club, 200 Golf Road, Libertyville. The impact and stress of the repetitive motion of the golf swing is sometimes hard on the muscles and joints, especially if you ignore the early warning signs of injury. Our team of pros will analyze your grip and swing mechanics, and alert you to movements that might cause injury to your lower back, elbows, shoulders, or hands and wrists. Mark Neault, MD, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, will let you know about signs and symptoms of problems, and latest treatments. Then, Dr. Neault, Physical Therapist Scott Beckman and Lake County Forest Preserve District Golf Pro Alex Eichman will answer your questions. Following the presentation and Q&A, complimentary flexibility assessments will be offered to the first 10 registered attendees. This program is free but registration is required.

American Cancer Society CPS3 Survey
Tuesday, June 25, time TBD; Advocate Condell Medical Center West Tower, 801 S. Milwaukee Ave., Libertyville. This year the American Cancer Society is celebrating its 100th birthday! While the progress we've made is remarkable, there's still more work to be done. To better understand ways to prevent cancer, the American Cancer Society is recruiting men and women across the US and Puerto Rico for a landmark new research study -- Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). Advocate Condell is proud to be an enrollment site for this study. Individuals may choose to participate if they are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study (which involves completing follow-up surveys periodically over the next 20-30 years), are between the ages of 30 and 65 years old and have never been diagnosed with cancer.
