“There is a huge unmet need when it comes to chronic pain for all people but it is even greater with our kids who have pain.”

With those words, US Pain Foundation President Paul Gileno announced a new program his organization is launching called Pediatric Pain Warriors.

The first major event will be a weekend retreat for kids and families Nov. 9 through 11 at the Coronado Springs Resort in Disney World. The weekend will include a Take Control of Your Pain daylong seminar about pain, support group sessions, and fun activities.

Gileno said that other US Pain programs will be expanded to include pediatric editions.
