Call to Action on FDA Opioid Prescribing

Created by and for people with chronic pain, the NFMCPA believes our united voices:

  • educate policy makers and medical professionals;
  • generate supportive attitudes; and
  • change the way we receive health care. 
More than 100 million Americans live with chronic pain illnesses, including 10 million people affected by fibromyalgia.  It is important to our individual recoveries that we, as patients (and our families and loved ones), become empowered and proactive.

Through email alerts, the NFMCPA provides important information for calls to action.  When informed people unite, speak out, and get involved, current and future healthcare issues are resolved.
