This Friday For Grace leaders will attend the 2019 UC Irvine Integrative Health Institute's Women's Wellness Day as guests of founder Dr. Susan Samueli. They will enjoy a day of learning and networking - one that promotes the integrative medicine model for the care of women with chronic illness, including high-impact persistent pain. Keynote speakers include women health advocates Dr. Sara Gottfried and Suzanne Somers.
Our White Paper Committee has chosen recommendations to focus on at our August 14th Sacramento summit. The goal of this educational briefing is to spark legislation that will assist us in creating a California Pain Strategy. The recommendations are to 1) Establish a Center for Pain Research and Treatment in the Department of Health, 2) Enhance Education Related to Pain for Medical Students and Post-Graduate Providers, 3) Establish Integrative Pain Care Centers of Excellence Across California, and 4) Ensure Adequate Coverage by Third-Party Payers of Effective Pain Treatments.
Founding For Grace from a bed seventeen years ago today, we're proud to have raised worldwide awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - and gone on to promote care and wellness for Women In Pain as well as the gender bias in diagnosis and pain management. We send our deepest gratitude to all of you, past and present, who have supported us over the years with your amazing gifts of time, talent, passion and care. Together, we continue to heal!
