MAPN Feb. 26 presentation focuses on refusing medication, alternative therapies
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Marshfield Area Parent Network (MAPN) will host an event “Know Your Options: Refusing Medication and Alternative Therapies,” presented by Dr. Julie Tharp, parent UW-Marshfield/Wood County English professor, and Dr. Michael Larson, Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) clinical pain psychologist and director of Marshfield Clinic’s scheduled medication policy.
Join MCHS and Marshfield Area Coalition for Youth (MACY) in collaboration with Unified School District of Marshfield and Columbus Catholic Schools from 5-7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, at the Marshfield High School auditorium, 1401 E. Becker Road, Marshfield.
“Ana’s Path” is the story of a local parent trying to keep her OxyContin-addicted daughter alive and the lessons she has taken away from that experience. While there is no one solution for every family, learn from her story, hear a few suggestions and ponder how communities, state institutions, and health care can help. Dr. Larson will discuss ways you can advocate for your child in the doctor’s office, specific questions to ask and alternatives to pain management.
