The pain patient voice for better care is front and center in an article about For Grace's Change Agent Pain Summit: Part One running on the National Pain Report. Founder Cynthia Toussaint shares her strong view that these "experts" have been left out of care decision making for too long. People in pain and their caregivers will speak out at the September 22nd summit to help move the National Pain Strategy forward, get integrative pain management on the map, and, most importantly, improve pain care for others. You can view the summit via live webcast starting at 9am PT by linking HERE.
CA Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (SR 67) and LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl team up to proclaim September as Pain Awareness Month and September 22 as Women In Pain Awareness Day (this date coincides with our 2017 Change Agent Pain Summit: Part One.) For Grace has proudly sponsored these resolutions for 15 years - and our deepest gratitude goes out to these amazing legislators (and their staffers!) who continue to champion the cause of people with high-impact pain! Thank you for being our heroes!
Physical Therapist Dr. Joe Tatta interviewed Cynthia in this 45-minute podcast that focuses on her "best practices" for pain relief. Titled Remember Self-Care: The Most Important Part of Chronic Pain Treatment and Relief, Cynthia talks candidly about how western medicine failed her - and how alternative and self-care have brought her to better wellness. Cynthia also talks about her book Battle for Grace and, of course, For Grace's quickly approaching Change Agent Pain Summit.
