On Feb. 12, for the first time in years, Congress held a hearing on chronic pain. We were proud to have Cindy Steinberg, National Director of Policy and Advocacy, as one of the four selected witnesses who gave testimony. As a reminder, you can watch a recording of the hearing here.

Hearing makes headlines

The hearing–and Steinberg’s remarks in particular–received a multitude of coverage at the national and local level. Here are some of those articles.

 

Keep the momentum going

The hearing was an enlightening and important discussion. But we need to have more of them.

We are encouraging people with pain to help build on the momentum by asking their Senators to prioritize pain at the national level. It is especially important we contact Senators on the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee.
