Review for International Pain Foundation, San Tan Valley, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a proud member of the International Pain Foundation Board of Directors. It has been my pleasure to be involved in so much of the goal setting and mission accomplishments of the foundation. There are so many people who have helped the foundation grow and flourish over the years that it has been amazing to see how far and how many we have helped and how we are dedicated to continue our service to the chronic pain community. Thank you to all of our delegates, event volunteers, peer mentors, project directors, and board of directors for the time, effort and energy you put into making iPain the amazing NPO that it is with all volunteer staff and creative projects.

I have been volunteering for the POPF since 2008. I currently serve as a board member for the 2015-2016 years. As the owner of Respond and Rescue and a licensed EMT, I know how important access to care is for the chronically ill. We encourage others to share their stories so that the spotlight on these neuropathy conditions. I personally work to increase knowledge of other EMT and first respondent so when they encounter pain patients in the field, they are sensitive to their pain care needs as well as first response needs and that they understand that additional care is needed over and beyond the typical emergency patient care. Please check out the POPF website for additional information on all of the great education, awareness, social, and access to care programs we have to offer the pain community.

I have been volunteering for the POPF since 2008. I currently serve as a board member for the 2013-2014 years. as the owner of Safety First Training and a licensed EMT, I know how important access to care is for the chronically ill. We encourage others to share their stories so that the spotlight on these neuropathy condition can be made brighter and assistance can become more readily available. The POPF is doing this online, in-person events, social events and through supporting access to care issues on local and national levels! We are also helping patients who tend to isolate themselves get social and into public. This helps create a support system with mentors and pain patients who are in need of hope, ideas, and support. I am proud to be a board member of the Power of Pain Foundation because I see all of the great things that we do on a daily basis to assist patients

I have been volunteering for the POPF since 2008 after I met my wife's sister who has a chronic pain condition. Since then I have learned so much about how important access to care is for the chronically ill. I have also learned that sharing a spotlight on these neuropathy conditions with the community is vital in getting proper support for the patients. The POPF is doing this! They also help patients who tend to isolate themselves get out into the public and create a support system with mentors and pain patients who are in need of hope, ideas, and support. I am proud to be a volunteer and board member of the POPF because I see all of the great things that they are up to.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Bring in more funding so they can expand their reach.
