You’re invited to join us on November 30 at 7 pm ET for our KNOWvember Twitter chat, #NeuroPainChat.
Our featured participants are NY Times bestselling author Karen Duffy, Dr. Peter Abaci, and For Grace, a non-profit that promotes better care and wellness for women in chronic pain. But the conversation is open to all!
To participate or follow along, just look for the hashtag, #NeuroPainChat, or visit our Twitter page, @US_Pain. We’ll be discussing many issues surrounding neuropathic pain, including facts on its prevalence, treatment options, and more.

How to participate

- To reply directly to the question, use “A1,” “A2,” etc. so everyone knows which question you’re answering, and don’t forget to use #NeuroPainChat at the end. You can also retweet or reply to someone else’s #NeuroPainChat tweet.
