The Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ will host a Lunch and Learn program on Jan. 19 at 12:15 p.m. at the church, at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

Dr. John Frymoyer will share his expertise in pain management. During his presentation, “The Pain is in the Brain: The Key to Successful Treatment,” he will discuss the physiological and psychological aspects of pain and the modalities of treatment and rehabilitation that are proving successful.

Frymoyer is the former chairperson and dean of Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation at the University of Vermont and a member of the National Institutes of Arthritis Advisory Committee. During his chairmanship, he and his colleagues established a Spine Rehabilitation Program, which dealt with patients with chronic disabling back pain for which no surgery was possible.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.

A light lunch will be served.

Reservations requested by Jan. 16.
