Section 5.2267. The month of September is designated as "Pain Awareness Month" to raise public awareness and understanding of physical pain and pain management.
Section 2. In declaring September "Pain Awareness Month" by the enactment of section 5.2267 of the Revised Code, the General Assembly recognizes that physical pain affects tens of millions of Americans and that untreated or inadequately treated pain can diminish quality of life and result in economic loss to Ohio through medical expenses, lost wages, reduced productivity, and other costs. The General Assembly considers increasing public awareness of physical pain and promoting access to appropriate pain treatment for all Ohioans vital to reducing suffering and removing barriers to pain-free living.
