Fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Michael Goldberger of Tri-County Orthopedics will be at Urban Renewal Corp. for his 11th annual free foot health event for the area’s homeless. After pausing last November due to COVID-19 public health concerns, the event will resume this year. Dr. Goldberger and his team will provide free foot health examinations, routine foot care and new winter shoes on Sunday, Nov. 21, starting at 1 p.m. at 224 Sussex Ave.
