September is Pain Awareness Month
Pain Awareness Month is the time to raise awareness of pain and pain management. A great place to start is by talking to friends, family and health care providers about Pain Awareness Month and share with them that for the first time ever, pain is being recognized as an epidemic. Patients have not in the past been treated in a way that produced good outcomes. Visit a fellow pain advocate organization, the Community Pain Center and its Pain Cooperative, as they support member nonprofits like the NFA. We all work together to bring the challenges of living with pain to the forefront of our communities.
As Always...Thank You For Your Support!
