Allsup Kicks Off 2016 True Help® Web Series With “Claiming Power Over Pain”

Web event promotes patient-centered pain management, as called for in newly released National Pain Strategy; participants can recharge personal “power resources” and interact with pain and disability experts on April 21

Belleville, Ill. — March 31, 2016 — Allsup, a nationwide Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representation company, will host the Web event, “True Help Claiming Power Over Pain,” on Thursday, April 21, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (CST).  The first in the 2016 series of Web events created to empower individuals living with chronic illness and disabilities, “True Help Claiming Power Over Pain” will help individuals strengthen their personal power resources to improve quality of life, increase function and reduce the sense of suffering.

“This Web event is especially relevant given the recent release of the National Pain Strategy,” said Tai Venuti, Allsup manager of Strategic Alliances. “The Strategy envisions an environment  where people with pain have access to educational materials and can learn effective approaches to prevent, cope with, and reduce pain and its disability. That’s the environment ‘True help Claiming Power Over Pain’ creates.”

People living with chronic pain and experts from the American Chronic Pain Association, Arthritis Foundation, Invisible Disabilities® Association and Allsup will help participants recharge their personal power resources. Power resources often drained by chronic pain include physical strength, psychological stamina, hope, positive self-esteem, finances and social support.

The Web event will feature interactive activities, including group chats, Q and A with the experts, instant polls and opportunities to win prizes.
