I’m excited to let you know next month starts Pain Awareness Month. Over the past couple of years, you have seen posts from me for the U.S. Pain Foundation. I’m a Texas Ambassador and do advocacy work for them. While I haven’t been able to physically support my advocacy efforts, I do share important information as it pertains to the pain community or initiatives the U.S. Pain Foundation is involved in, as well as attend advocacy training seminars.
September marks an exciting and educational month which is recognized as Pain Awareness Month. The goal of the month is to raise awareness for the 50 million Americans who live with chronic pain.
Please check out U.S. Pain Foundation to find resources, support groups, news about Federal advocacy efforts, pediatric programs and support for families, and their magazine Invisible Project and more.
