September is National Pain Awareness Month

The purpose of Pain Awareness Month is to bring attention to the suffering of 75 million Americans and to highlight the need for research and new, improved treatment options. 

How You Can Observe Pain Awareness Month:

The American Pain Foundation Action Network is asking that you join the “If I Lived in a World with Less Pain, I Could…” campaign to raise awareness and help secure a first-ever presidential proclamation naming every September National Pain Awareness Month.

Rest Ministries is sponsoring National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week from September 12 – 18, 2011.  Their Web site features a number of opportunities to participate including guest bloggers who discuss various issues people with invisible illnesses face every day, and virtual conferences you can access through your computer.
