CT PHARMACY: ARTHRITIS

Wednesday Feb. 8, 12:30 p.m.

Most people commonly think of arthritis as the condition of having painful, stiff joints. In fact, there are many kinds of arthritis, each with different symptoms and treatments. Most types of arthritis are chronic with symptoms lasting years.

Arthritis can attack joints in almost any part of the body. Some forms of arthritis cause changes you can see and feel such as pain, swelling, warmth and redness in your joints. Other types cause less troublesome symptoms, but slowly damage your joints.

Diane, the pharmacist from CT Pharmacy will present a program aimed at answering any questions you may have on arthritis.

Thursday Feb. 9 — 10 a.m.

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs, published annually by the Foreign Policy Association.  Great Decisions provides background information, current data and policy options for each issue and serves as the focal text for discussion groups. We will meet once a month on the second Thursday to discuss one topic per session. It is important that you read the appropriate section of the briefing book (approximately 8 to 10 pages) to prepare for these discussions.  These sessions are not lectures.
