US Pain Awareness Month Logo


Chronic pain is often misunderstood and stigmatized by the general public. U.S. Pain Foundation believes that, in order to create positive change in the perception of pain, people living with chronic pain must share their stories far and wide. Toward this goal, the U.S. Pain Foundation is encouraging pain warriors to compose an op-ed for their hometown paper to help encourage public understanding of the challenges faced by pain patients.

Here are some resources to get you started:

Please email questions to  or Submit published op-eds by filling out the Publication Submission form.
