Sign and Share the White House Petition – Urging Implementation of National Pain Strategy

The Chronic Pain Research Alliance is a member of the Consumer Pain Advocacy Task Force (CPATF). The CPATF started a White House Petition to urge the implementation and funding of the National Pain Strategy (NPS). The NPS is a federal blueprint for a better future for people with chronic conditions to increase discovery research for new treatments, pain education, and insurance coverage and to recognize chronic pain as a disease.

Currently, the NPS is housed at the Department of Health & Human Services, but the Administration has not implemented or funded it. There is a chance that the NPS could be ignored and not funded, which is why we need YOUR help! In order to ensure this petition is presented to President Obama, we have until August 12th to get 100,000 signatures, and we need your support.

  • Sign the WH Petition at Signing is a two-step process. After signing, check the email account you used to sign the petition. The White House will send an email asking you to confirm your signature.
