This year's meeting will explore the chronic pain experience and identify ways patient organizations can work together to improve the quality of life for 100 million+ people impacted by this overlooked health challenge.
Women in pain, catch a podcast tomorrow (Monday, June 12) as Dr. Karen Litzy and For Grace Founder Cynthia Toussaint talk about coping strategies for high-impact chronic pain, the importance of self-management and Cynthia's memoir, Battle for Grace, that details her 35-year journey with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

Join them June 8th @ Noon PT to post comments, questions or just to say hello!
It took Woman In Pain Celeste Hall some 20 years to get a CRPS diagnosis - all the while her doctors said she was "an anxious woman without real problems." Celeste's diagnosis came far too late for remission, but she shares her story of grit and determination whenever she can to help other women in pain find early care and relief.
