Summer is here, and so is the need to get in shape and stay active. Attend a free health talk on Thurs.

Dr. Robert Crawford, sports medicine specialist with the Summa Center for Sports Health; and Dr. Jonathan Kase, orthopaedic surgeon with Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center, a partnership with Summa; will lead an informal discussion and answer your questions about orthopaedic problems that you and your family may experience, including sports-related concussions and knee or hip pain. You will also have a chance to win a one-month membership to the new Wadsworth YMCA.
