Naperville podiatric physician Larry Kosova, DPM gives last minute exercise instructions to students at Cragin-Belmont Elementary School in Chicago.

Kosova participated in a new program sponsored by the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association called “Move Your Feet.” The program promotes exercise and education about foot and ankle health and was inspired, in part, by First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” exercise program.

The program encourages physical fitness while also educating elementary school children about anatomy and the importance of their own foot health. The pilot program focuses on children in grades four through eight and covered: anatomy of the foot, common foot ailments and their treatments and the importance of exercise.
