Community in Crisis will offer a pain management lecture on June 7th at 7PM at the Community Hub located in the old library building, 2 Morristown Rd, Bernardsville NJ. In line with its mission to support individuals and families in building and maintaining healthy lifestyles as well as to promote mental health and wellbeing, this program will educate residents on alternative pain management.

The facilitator, Dr. Terrence Welsh, MD, will review non-opioid alternatives to treating both acute and chronic pain, providing strategies for patients to help themselves and family members navigate the choices in pain management while avoiding the potential risks associated with opioid medications. The lecture is free and all are welcome. Coffee and refreshments will be served. Registration is much appreciated but walk ins are welcome, also. Please register at: https://conta.cc/2w3wqTx

Dr. Welsh is a diplomat of The American Board of Anesthesiology with added qualifications in Pain Management. He received his medical degree from New York University School of Medicine. Dr. Welsh is skilled in treating patients with various chronic and acute pain complaints, including, but not limited to: CRPS, neck and back injuries, peripheral nerve damage, cancer pain and traumatic injuries. He uses the latest in evidence based medicine, combining interventional techniques with interdisciplinary care to improve the quality of his patient’s lives.

“According to the American Pain Foundation, more than 76 million Americans suffer from chronic pain caused by anything from arthritis to cancer,” said Andi Williams, Executive Director, Community in Crisis. “We’d like to encourage people to take a more comprehensive approach to managing their pain instead of going straight to their medicine cabinet for pain relief.”
