The goals of public engagement are to increase awareness, educate the public and encourage participation. PAINS-KC, Citizen Leaders meet monthly to share ideas and give voice to changing perceptions about individuals living with chronic pain. This diverse, amazing group of individuals are champions in advocating for comprehensive chronic pain management. They have participated in numerous community events, testified in Congress and work tirelessly on behalf of the 100M Americans who live with chronic pain.
My work with PAINS-KC has given me a voice…. I am heard.
