Natural Awakenings Boston

Find the Right Support System at Free Chronic Pain Event

The second annual, “I’m Not Just Anybody: Fight Back Against Chronic Pain” event, a collaboration between the U.S. Pain Foundation and the Hope Collective, will take place from 2:30 to 5 p.m., November 20, at the Massachusetts State House.

Chronic pain affects one in three adults and still remains widely misunderstood by both the general public and the medical field. Attendees can listen to others that have gone through the pain experience, and hear from alternative healthcare specialists that work directly with chronic pain patients. Specialists will be available in acupuncture, corrective therapy, massage therapy, mental health counseling, yoga and more. Light refreshments donated by Whole Foods will be provided.

Keynote speaker Jim Curtis, storyteller, patient, entrepreneur and author of the recently published The Stimulati, has walked the same path as many chronic pain patients, and now lives to inspire others by leading a meaningful life with pain.

Cost: Free. Location: Massachusetts State House, Great Hall, 24 Beacon St., Boston. To register for event, visit For more information about the Hope Collective, visit
