Do you have tingling, prickling, burning, numbness or muscle weakness in your hands and feet? If so, peripheral neuropathy might be to blame. This condition affects an estimated 20 million Americans, with symptoms that can last from days to years and may worsen over time.
Peripheral neuropathy and how to alleviate the discomfort it brings will be the focus of a free seminar at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 29, in Ventura. The seminar is hosted by Community Memorial Health System which kicks off its 2020 Speaker Series with this event.
The guest speaker will be Dr. Neda Heidari, who specializes in neurology and neurophysiology. Dr. Heidari received her medical degree from Tehran University of Medical Sciences and completed residency training at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and fellowship training at USC University Hospital. Dr. Heidari is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and is an active member of the Community Memorial Hospital medical staff.
The seminar will begin at 6 p.m. at the Museum of Ventura County, 100 E. Main St. Registration is free but reservations are required. For reservations, visit www.cmhshealth.org/rsvp or call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.
