13th Annual: A Primer on Pain-how it affects us and what we can do about it

A Primer on Pain – how pain affects us and what we can do about it

Join the Lafayette String Quartet as this year’s health forum travels into the realm of pain. What is the purpose of pain?  Does everyone feel pain the same way? What are the factors that influence pain? What are some of the positive ways we can treat pain? Three presenters will share their expertise and help us to better understand the world of pain and its management.
