Chronic pain plays no favorites — it crosses all cultural and socioeconomic circles — but the same is not true for getting that pain treated, educators gathered at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington said Saturday.
Access to help for chronic pain is improving for people with limited financial resources, but it continues to come mostly from traditional medical providers rather than through more cost-effective treatments.
“Patients in chronic pain face all sorts of barriers to getting the best care,” Dashe said. Lacking the money to seek treatment, some choose to live with their discomfort. “Or they work so much that they just don’t take care of themselves,” she said. “Others may not even be aware of their options. For instance, someone with pain from shingles doesn’t know they might be given just one acupuncture treatment and, bam! — it’s gone.”
Since 1941, nearly two million women have served in many different defense roles. More than 500,000 women have served in combat theatre of operations. Women have served as officers, nurses, pilots, mechanics, drivers and gunners. They have also provided medical, communications, logistical and administrative support.
Over 1,000 women have been wounded and over 100 have been killed in action or taken as a prisoner of war.
Currently, about 14.5% of the active duty miliary are women. As they return to civilian life, some will need our assistance, all will cherish our appreciation for all they sacrificed.
100% of the net proceeds directly benefit women veterans who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless. These funds go to women's programs at Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans - a 501(c)3 organization (www.mac-v.org).
