For Grace's Sacramento Pain Briefing was a smashing success! Partnering with Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (pictured here), we convened legislative and policy leaders on August 14th to enlighten them about the chronic pain experience and barriers to care. Our world-class presenters capped the day with a Recommendation to implement a comprehensive Pain Center in the Golden State. Follow us as we move this much-needed effort ahead - and catch the day's webcast archive HERE.
For Grace's White Paper committee finalized their report on our November 2018 Pain Summit which convened health care luminaries from across California. This comprehensive report - which provides an overview of chronic pain as an over-looked public health crisis, comprehensive integrative medicine as the care model to move pain management forward and a recommendation for a California Pain Center to serve the 6-12 million people impacted by persistent pain - will be shared with legislators, staffers and health agency leaders at For Grace's legislative briefing on Wednesday, August 14 at the Sacramento State Capitol. Thank you all who made this report possible - and here's to better days ahead!
The National Pain Report's editor-in-chief, Ed Coghlan, wrote a comprehensive article about For Grace's fast approaching legislative briefing at the California State Capitol in Sacramento. The article details the aim of the briefing which is to educate legislators, staffers and state health agency leaders about chronic pain as a public health crisis and its under-management. Further, presenters will urge policy makers to implement a Pain Center under the California Health and Human Services agency.
