Case Western Reserve University pain experts will present a special program, “The Body in Pain,” at the City Club of Cleveland on Jan. 25 at noon. The program will give a wide-ranging and accessible view of pain, including chronic pain, which affects at least 116 million American adults—more than the total affected by heart disease, cancer and diabetes combined. Learn about this important condition, its causes, cutting-edge treatments and what you can do to address it. To reserve individual or group tickets for this lunchtime program, call the City Club at 216.621.0082.
The program will feature Jeffrey Janata, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry and director of the Behavioral Medicine Program at the School of Medicine and University Hospitals Case Medical Center; Salim Hayek, MD, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and chief of University Hospitals Division of Pain Medicine at University Hospitals Case Medical Center; and Catherine S. Koppelman, RN, MSN, clinical assistant professor at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and chief nursing officer of University Hospitals.
This program is part of an in-depth multiple media exploration, the Body in Pain, from WVIZ/PBS & 90.3 WCPN ideastream in partnership with CWRU and its health website NetWellness, along with the Plain Dealer, Channel 3/WKYC, and the City Club of Cleveland.
