  • Staying Active with Joint Pain: An Interactive Discussion with Dr. Jacob Drew Staying Active with Joint Pain: An Interactive Discussion with Dr. Jacob Drew 2019-03-27 Location: JCC, 333 Nahanton Street, Newton

    Pain is our bodies’ way of alerting us that something is wrong. But with today’s active lifestyles, no one wants to restrict their activities due to pain. If joint pain is slowing you down or keeping you from your favorite activities, please join Dr. Jacob Drew for an interactive discussion on joint pain. Dr. Drew will discuss the causes of joint pain, possible reasons why joint pain occurs, and options for treatment, including exercise, stretching, medication and surgical options. Please wear comfortable clothing as some light stretching and exercise demonstration will be involved. We hope that you can join us for the second event in the three-part JCC Wellness Series.

    All JCC Wellness Series events are free and open to the community. To RSVP for an event, or for more information, contact groupfit@jccgb.org.

    Hidden in Plain Sight is an interactive display of a teenager’s bedroom which contains common items that can hide substances, and helps parents to “spot” signs of at-risk behavior in their teen. Visitors will receive education about substance use from trained volunteers followed by a tour of the model bedroom. This exhibit is an integral part of community education and encourages parents to talk to their children about at-risk behaviors that can lead to opioid use, addiction, and substance use
    disorders.
