Workshops aimed to help veterans manage chronic pain

The American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) wants to help veterans learn how to manage chronic pain through a series of workshops called Vets in Pain.

At the workshops, the ACPA will address the impact chronic pain has on veterans and their families, how to manage chronic pain and how to establish a peer group with others suffering from chronic pain.

The events are free and open to all veterans, family members and health care professionals.
