Turning 21, Team For Grace Reflects on the Good Work

Today, For Grace turns the ripe ol' age of 21. As a time to drink in and savor the good work past and current, we have a firm understanding that women challenged by high-impact persistent pain still face disheartening healthcare discrimination and bias in the treatment of their conditions. Also, that there are many pieces of the puzzle yet to explore that drive the pain experience, in particular its connection to trauma. So much more to do, yet in 21 years, so much has been accomplished with indefatigable work. Thank you to all who have helped us better the lives of women in pain.
