For Grace will host its third segment in a year-long series about Integrative Pain Care on The Mighty's Facebook Live this Thursday, March 22nd @ 1:30pm PT. This stream will focus on chronic pain and the social isolation that ensues. Studies show that chronic loneliness is more harmful to our health than obesity and tobacco, making this issue a critical barrier to well-being. Please join this interactive segment with your comments, experiences and questions.
