Midwestern University's free monthly Community Health Lecture Series continues to serve the community by offering presentations on a variety of healthcare topics from the University's faculty experts.

Held on the second Monday of every month, each hour-long interactive lecture addresses health issues facing our community every day, from coping with ankle injuries to finding the proper mental health resources to addressing arthritis in your pets.

The lectures are provided at no cost to the community and are held in partnership with the Glendale-Foothills Branch Library. No reservations are necessary.
