Today is the first day of September, which marks the beginning of the 2010 Pain Awareness Month, "Uniting Our Voices, Conquering Pain Together." The American Pain Foundation works hard all year long to improve policies that impact pain patients and improve awareness about the obstacles pain patients encounter. During this special month there are many easy, fast ways for you to get involved and help increase public awareness.

They suggest these ideas to get involved:

  • Spread the word! If you’re on Facebook or use another social networking platform, use your status to update people on Pain Awareness Month and the Virtual March. Encourage them to do the same!
  • Think of five organizations or community partners in your area. Tell them about Pain Awareness Month and ask them to visit this website to endorse the march and share it with their members. Pain Awareness Month
  • Support our efforts by donating to the cause. Donate Now.

Visit the American Pain Foundation Pain Awareness Month page for more information: Pain Awareness Month Toolkit. The American Pain Foundation also has a wealth of information for pain patients on its website: For Pain Patients.
