CPH's Fibromyalgia-EDS Support Group Meets March 5, 2019

Potsdam, NY—Canton-Potsdam Hospital's Fibromyalgia-Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Support Group will meet on Tuesday, March 5, 12:00 pm -1:00 pm, 59 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Clarkson Hall, Potsdam.

Group facilitator Leslie Russek, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS, will lead a discussion on "Effective Communication while Managing Chronic Pain." According to Dr. Russek, "Communication with family, friends, providers, employers, and even ourselves takes on new dimensions when we are living with chronic pain. Is our communication with others effective in transmitting how we are feeling, or are we sending mixed messages that could be misinterpreted?"

Participants may park in the "Patient Parking" area in front of Clarkson Hall. All those who manage chronic pain are welcome to attend and share their challenges and successes. Family and friends are welcome as well.

Dr. Leslie Russek specializes in chronic pain management at Canton-Potsdam Hospital and is an Associate Professor in Clarkson University's Physical Therapy Department. Those requiring further information should contact Dr. Leslie Russek at lrussek@clarkson.edu.
