Each November, U.S. Pain offers a month-long educational campaign to provide helpful information and resources to people living with pain and their caregivers. In honor of the young individuals who have had to find their new “normal” at an early age, U.S. Pain Foundation is dedicating this year’s KNOWvember campaign to pediatric pain warriors.
Children with pain and their families face a unique set of challenges. To help them navigate these challenges, U.S. Pain will provide daily social media facts throughout the month and the chance to interact leading experts in the pediatric pain arena through several webinars.
