So much good came out of For Grace' s Legislative Pain Briefing at the California Capitol, we want to share a number of ways that you can experience this ground-breaking day. The National Pain Report's editor-in-chief Ed Coghlan wrote an excellent recap of the event that includes our efforts to transform pain policy. Also, a webcast archive of the briefing is available, one where you can watch our team of world-class presenters enlighten decision makers about the need to make chronic pain a top public health priority in the Golden State. Last, you can view our pictures on Flickr that capture the passion and energy that kick-started a better day for the 6-12 million Californians challenged by chronic pain. Check back as we move this bold initiative forward!
