“Make it Stop: Addressing Chronic Pain in Women, and How the Federal Government Can Help”

According to the CDC, more than 1 in 5 adults in America suffer from chronic pain, and women are more likely to experience chronic pain than men. September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month, and HealthyWomen is proud to help raise awareness of this debilitating condition.

Women suffering from chronic pain — defined as pain lasting longer than three to six months — face substantial challenges to accessing adequate care. While research has shown that women generally experience more recurrent, longer lasting and more severe pain than men, women are still less likely than men to receive treatment.

Tune in to our Facebook Live to hear from leading experts, including two women who live with chronic pain, on why women are more likely to experience chronic pain, what barriers exist when it comes to women accessing pain management, and how current legislation in Congress can help address this debilitating condition.

Visit HealthyWomen’s Facebook page on September 30, 12-1 EDT. This event is free to all.
