The Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Pain Institute moved from its location on the second floor of 1211 Union Ave The Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Pain Institute moved from its location on the second floor of 1211 Union Ave. to the eighth floor of the east wing of Methodist Healthcare-Central, 1265 Union Ave. The Pain Institute opened in August 1998 to address the needs of patients with chronic pain. It provides complete evaluation and treatment through a single center. The institute offers a multi-disciplinary approach, working with more than 20 physicians from nearly a dozen specialties. A free Title VI workshop is 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Memphis Board of Education auditorium, 2597 Avery Ave. The purpose of the workshop is to inform those in the community, especially minority members of their rights under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects persons from discrimination in obtaining services from any program or activity receiving federal tax dollars, including state and local agencies. For information, call Paul Morris at 576-7175, Linda Reed at 543-7389 or Sylvia Odom at (888) 370-3647. A public hearing begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, 2597 Avery Ave. for city and county officials to receive input on how to spend $3.2 million in federal and local matching funds in the next year to fight crime. The federal Law Enforcement Block Grant funding represents one of the opportunities when federal officials allow communities to decide how to spend federal dollars with fewer strings attached. This is the fifth year Memphis and Shelby County received this funding. In the past, funds have gone toward such initiatives as the Drug Court and enhanced prosecution of domestic violence cases. Memphis is slated to receive $3 million from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for lead abatement, testing and to reduce other environmental and safety dangers in U.S. homes. The aid was announced in the form of a $68.3 million award to 16 states. Through the funds, federal officials hope to hasten the removal of lead-based paint hazards from 8,000 privately owned low-income homes and apartments, test childrens blood to determine lead levels, inspect and test homes for lead hazards, and provide job training for lead-control hazard workers. Lead-based paint was banned from use in homes in 1978. Many older houses and apartments still contain lead-based paint.
