Sometimes it can lead to pain.
Do you have unexplained pain in your wrists? Your feet and hands?
Even your knees or elbows?
Could it be arthritis?
For answers to these questions, the Laurel County Public Library invites the public to attend an informational program on arthritis 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17.
