MI Don’t Punish Pain Rally – October 16

Monday, October 7, 2019

Organizers of Michigan’s Don’t Punish Pain Rally are inviting Michigan chronic pain patients and their friends and families, physicians, and other health care professionals to participate with others across the nation on October 16 to raise awareness about intractable pain and the impact well-intentioned legislative and regulatory changes have had on stigma, care delivery and lack of access.  According to Kenneth Waltzer, one of the state event organizers, “there is a need to find new balance in setting rules for the appropriate management of pain while continuing to mitigate risk for overdose.” 

Michigan’s event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 16, 2019, at the Michigan State Capitol front steps from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  Person with questions about the rally can contact organizers at or visit their website
