Taking away the pain with MVU3A

Community, EventsJoanne Eisemann

LIVING WITH persistent pain can literally be ‘a pain in the neck’. For Seniors’ Week, Meander Valley U3A is offering an event which is a mix of fun, entertainment and the opportunity to hear some good news about pain relief.

MVU3A will welcome the developer of the ‘Overcoming Pain And Living Life’, (OPALL) program Michelle Nicholson and facilitator, BJ White, to speak about strategies used in the OPALL program. This program can be accessed through self-referral.

One of our U3A members has done the program and found the strategies amazing and hugely helpful in overcoming pain. She definitely recommends OPALL.

The public is invited to this free event, sponsored by Meander Valley Council.

The event will be held at 1:30pm, Tuesday 8 October, at Westbury RSL, Lonsdale Promenade. This is in the U3A term break, the week before official Seniors’ Week. Light refreshments will be served.
