The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association unites patients, policy makers, and healthcare, medical and scientific communities to transform lives through visionary support, advocacy, research and education of fibromyalgia and chronic pain illnesses.
Who They Are:
The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA) is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization. They support people with chronic pain illnesses and their families and friends by contributing to caring, professional, and community relationships. Through continuing education, networking with support groups and advocates, and affiliation with professional organizations, the members of the NFMCPA have a place to be informed, get involved, and recognize achievements.
What They Do:
The NFMCPA addresses the controversies, prejudices, and the life-altering effects of fibromyalgia and overlapping chronic pain conditions that millions of people experience. Combined with the recent shift in the American College of Rheumatology’s FM diagnostic criteria that now includes 42 symptoms in the patient medical assessment, these issues–all part of FM co-existing conditions–are at the core of the Association’s work to provide resources to help people live better with fibromyalgia and chronic pain conditions.
They promote public awareness and understanding to support patients, families, and friends in their search to find useful information and methods for improving their condition and coping with the difficulties associated with fibromyalgia and overlapping illnesses.
