Join For Grace leaders John Garrett and Cynthia Toussaint on The Mighty's Facebook Live Stream this Thursday, February 22nd @ 1:30pm PT - as they continue their monthly conversations about pain and Integrative Care. In this interactive segment, John and Cynthia will plunge into the topic of how “gut” intuition and the mind-body connection often join forces to bring better wellness. They look forward to hearing your comments, experiences and questions.
On February 14th, 2018 in Cambridge, MA, we attended a kick-off meeting hosted by Grunenthal, to represent the diverse voices of patients living with pain. The projects (a pain scale that includes functionality and better pain descriptors between patients and doctors) we're working on will be showcased at the 2018 US Patient Day. We'll keep you posted as opportunities arise for you in our community to participate by providing your insights.
For Grace is proud to support the efforts of leaders in science, politics, healthcare and academia to recognize January 25th as Women's Health Research Day. Senator Tammy Duckworth and Representative Jan Schakowsky are planning to introduce a congressional resolution to acknowledge this important awareness effort. For Grace will contribute actions that include signing onto a letter endorsing the day, sharing announcements of the day via social media and, most importantly, joining a coalition of organizations interested in empowering women to be a part of medical research.
