FREE COMMUNITY SEMINAR AT CASA COLINA - FIBROMYALGIA: THE INVISIBLE ILLNESS

What:

Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation is pleased to announce that it will hold a free seminar about Fibromyalgia, often known as "the invisible illness." Casa Colina is uniquely qualified to present this special evening program due to its many years of offering comprehensive medical care and a Fibromyalgia Management Program and support group to the community.

Fibromyalgia is a complex chronic pain illness that is recognized by the American Medical Association, the National Institutes of Health and the American College of Rheumatology. Fibromyalgia experts estimate that about 10 million Americans and approximately 5% of the population worldwide suffer with Fibromyalgia. While it is most common in women, the illness strikes men, women and children of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Fibromyalgia can often interfere with routine daily activities and for those with severe symptoms, it can be extremely debilitating.

Dr. Samy Metyas, a board certified physician specializing in fibromyalgia at Casa Colina's Arthritis Center will lead the free seminar. He is board-certified in Rheumatology and Internal Medicine and is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and American College of Rheumatology, as well as a Certified Clinical Densitometrist. He is an international speaker and has coauthored articles in such journals as Journal of Rheumatology, Journal of Clinical Rheumatology, and Annals of Rheumatic Disease. Also included in the presentation will be Dianne Whiting, MA, PT and Manager of Casa Colina's Fibromyalgia Program. Topics of discussion include effective management and treatment, lifestyle modifications and exercise that improve symptoms, managing pain associated with the disease, and more.

This special event will be held on Thursday, May 12 from 6 to 8 pm at Casa Colina's Tamkin Education Center, Building 1D, which is located on the Casa Colina campus at 255 East Bonita Avenue (at Garey) in Pomona. Refreshments will be served and seating is limited. Please call toll-free 866/724-4132 to reserve your space.
