Dr. Oz Raises Awareness of Pain in America

Per American Pain Foundation September 29, 2011 article:

The Dr. Oz Show interviewed top doctors this week about a familiar subject— pain. Dr. Oz was shocked to learn what so many of us live with every day.

Pain is prevalent, finding good pain care is hard, and women face discrimination when it comes to pain assessment and treatment.

Please take a moment to send a note to Dr. Oz, thanking him and his producers for raising awareness of the need for improved pain management in America!

If you have faced barriers to effective pain care, or have been told that pain is “all in your head,” be sure to share your story at the following link:
