Through Pain Connection, U.S. Pain Foundation offers a network of support groups across the country. These support groups are led by people with pain who have received special training via Pain Connection’s Clinical Director, Gwenn Herman, LCSW, DCSW, a licensed social worker and person with pain.
We are currently looking to expand our support group offerings to even more states through our next training on March 16 & 17 in San Francisco, CA, at the Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco Airport/Burlingame.
Pain patients need and deserve a seat at the table (even if it means bringing in a cot!). On Feb. 12, they finally got one.
“We are incredibly grateful to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) for including Cindy Steinberg, National Director of Policy and Advocacy for U.S. Pain, during its hearing on ‘Managing Pain During the Opioid Crisis,'” says Interim CEO Nicole Hemmenway. “We are even more grateful to Cindy for bravely sharing her story and perspective.”
We are delighted to share the dates and location of the next Pediatric Pain Warrior weekend retreat: May 24-26 at Morgan’s Wonderland in San Antonio, TX.
Morgan’s Wonderland is an ultra-accessible family fun park with rides and activities for kids of all ages and abilities. Like with the inaugural 2018 retreat, the weekend will bring together children with pain and their families for a weekend of education, support, and fun.
