U.S. Pain has created a new support group for Connecticut residents living with chronic pain. The group’s first meeting will be April 19 at 1 pm at U.S. Pain’s headquarters at 670 Newfield Street, Suite C, in Middletown.

The meeting is open to any one living with pain. U.S. Pain’s Lori Monarca, executive office director and director of the ambassador program, and Wendy Foster, senior advocate, will lead the meetings.

“Many times, chronic pain patients are so focused on their physical health that they forget to address their emotional and mental needs,” says Monarca. “We are incredibly excited to help people connect with other patients, learn about resources available to them and become more aware of strategies to cope with the challenges they face.”
