U.S. Pain's National Director of Policy and Advocacy, Cindy Steinberg, participated in developing the NPS.
"We're so pleased to see the NPS released and glad it has taken a comprehensive look at the issues facing our community," said Paul Gileno, President and Founder of the U.S. Pain Foundation. "We were thrilled Cindy played a role in developing the strategy, and we look forward to helping to implement its recommendations."
"I'm so pleased that this work has resulted in a way forward for the pain community," said Steinberg. "Those of us living with pain should see this as huge step forward in making our voices heard. U.S. Pain Foundation plans to take an active role in ensuring the NPS is implemented with the help of our members. We will be asking our over 70,000 members to educate their representatives in Congress on the National Pain Strategy and how critical and urgent the need is to accomplish its goal of transforming pain care in the U.S." said Steinberg.
