ACPA Webinars

On Wednesday, March 31, at 1 PM EDT / 7 PM CET, VRforHealth will premiere its live webinar series with, the patient perspective, presented by a patient.
We are very fortunate to have Tom Norris, Patient, Pain Advisor, and of course, veteran VR user, coming to us live from Los Angeles. He will be interviewed by Denise Silber, Co-Founder of VRforHealth, who will be live in Paris, France.
The webinar will focus on the use of VR for chronic pain, thanks to the first-hand experience of Tom Norris* and the vision of Denise Silber**, a digital health pioneer.

Be sure to register for our webinar to hear meaningful insights about VR for chronic pain and to ask your questions.


Migraine Survey

The ACPA is conducting a survey to gather information about the experiences of those who live with migraines/headaches to better understand the burden that migraines/headaches cause and what can help to reduce that burden.

If you suffer from headaches, we would appreciate your feedback. We estimate that it will take about 15 minutes to complete this survey. Your input is valuable, and your privacy is important to us. Remember, no individual personal information will be collected. Your input will advance our understanding of migraines/headaches and will help to shape headache-related education for health care providers. Thank you in advance to taking the time to help with the survey.
