CDC Looking for Content
By the way, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is looking for public comments on chronic pain treatment. about the experiences of patients in pain. “It’s important that they hear from you,” said attorney and chronic pain advocate Kate Nicholson on Twitter.
The deadline for comment is June 16th. About three dozen folks have already commented.
We suggest you read those comments first and then add your voice. Please comment because it’s very important for the CDC and other government agencies to hear the chronic pain patient.
Giving Day Approaches
The COVID-19 public health emergency is hurting many non-profits and hurting them badly. While many of you are no doubt being hurt by the financial downtown, remember your non-profit pain advocacy groups.
May 5th is Giving Tuesday Now, a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
