Of note, For Grace's 2014 Women In Pain survey is highlighted in this guide that provides the foundation for better days ahead!
Join For Grace leaders John Garrett and Cynthia Toussaint as they continue their monthly series on The Mighty's Facebook Live about chronic pain and integrative care. Streaming on Thursday, April 26th @ 1:30pm PT, they'll explore how letting go of happiness in pursuit of meaning leads to better well-being for those suffering high-impact pain. Looking forward to a lively, interactive conversation!
For Grace has signed on to a letter that encourages US Senator Todd Young (R - Indiana) to put forth legislation for the Center for Disease Control to collect epidemiological data on chronic pain including the incidence and prevalence of all conditions, syndromes, diseases, etc. The legislation proposes to create a National Chronic Pain Surveillance System and allow researchers and federal agencies to use the data collected.
Sixteen years ago today, our founder Cynthia Toussaint had For Grace incorporated from her bed. This launched an effort to first raise awareness of CRPS and then the gender bias toward women in chronic pain. We're proud to have taken our message around the world and to most every media source in the country. Cheers to and gratitude for the continued good work as we watch For Grace grow...
