For the first time in Texas, a conference will offer an integrative look at successful ways to deal with chronic pain and fibromyalgia. The North Texas Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Conference, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 7, offers a no-stress opportunity to hear well-known speakers talk about integrative and alternative methods they use with their patients to manage chronic pain from a range of conditions, including car wrecks, old sports injuries, traumatic accidents and fibromyalgia. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions.
