Healthy U Lecture: "Common Foot Myths"

Monday, May 18, 2015

10 a.m.

By age 80, the average person will have traveled approximately 216,262,500 steps – that’s a lot of wear and tear on our feet. Dr. David M. Hyde, DPM, has been tending to our main mode of transportation for nearly 20 years. He’ll present “Common Foot Myths” during Covenant Village of the Great Lakes’ “Healthy U” lecture on Monday, May 18 at 10 a.m. Covenant Village of the Great Lakes is a faith-based, not-for-profit continuing care retirement community administered by Covenant Retirement Communities.

Coffee and refreshments begin at 9 a.m., followed by the presentation at 10 a.m.

During his presentation, Hyde will highlight the foot’s anatomy – did you know the foot contains one-quarter of the body’s bones? He’ll share tips to better care for your feet and debunk common myths associated with foot problems. For example, do shoes really cause bunions?

Hyde has been a podiatrist in private practice since 1998. In 2006 he began treating full-time underserved seniors in West Michigan. He travels to nearly 20 senior living communities, assisted living facilities and senior apartments in the Grand Rapids and Muskegon areas. He earned his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, Ill.

The free presentation is part of Covenant Village of the Great Lakes’ “Healthy U” monthly lecture series. Reservations are not required. For more information, please visit or call (877) 812-8745.

Covenant Village of the Great Lakes is located at 2510 Lake Michigan Dr., N.W., Grand Rapids.
