For Grace

Founded in 2002, For Grace‚Äôs main goal is to increase awareness and promote education of the gender disparity women experience in the assessment and treatment of their pain. We believe empowering women to be better consumers for their pain management care, sensitizing the general public to gender pain disparities and enlightening public policy makers about pain as a major health issue will improve life outcomes for all women in chronic pain. Also, we see increased medical research about the differences in how men and women experience pain as part of the answer to alleviating the toll of human suffering. We believe medical research will pave the way for gender-specific therapies that will better manage persistent pain.  (Read More...)
