4th Annual Midwest Pain Treatment Education Expo
Gracie Gean Chronic Pain Advocacy & Consulting is excited to offer the 4th Annual Midwest Pain Treatment Education Expo in Northbrook, Illinois. The goal of this event is to help you become better educated regarding treatments, how to utilize your voice with advocacy efforts and help you find local support.
We will have doctors and patients that will discuss the latest advances in pain management and complementary therapies. Local groups working to help the pain community will also be in attendance. This is an event you don't want to miss!
Registration is required to attend this event. Funds are used to support the Expo and GG Chronic Pain Foundation, a 501C3 Non-Profit. There is a live, commercial free online stream as well if you cannot attend in person. Although the live stream is free, registration is required for the live stream also. Online viewers will not have access to the exhibitors; only the speakers. In past years, attendees have had trouble deciding whether the speakers or the exhibitors were better! Many exhibitors offer free treatments right at the Expo! BE SURE TO BRING YOUR TICKET!
This Midwest event was inspired and created from the requests of the pain patients in the Midwest. We strive to house as many different pain treatment options in one location as possible. We want pain patients to see first hand that there are many options available to treat their pain, other than what they may hear about in their local clinic. We host local doctors as our speakers. This way our attendees may schedule appointments with these doctors after the conference if they so choose. This is our fourth annual event, and it just get better each year! Through our attendee feedback, we have made revisions and molded this into a patient-centered event that you won't want to miss!
We provide a full lunch consisting of a sandwich, wrap, or salad, an apple, a cookie, and choice of drinks.
Our schedule is extended this year in response to our survey requests!
