Founded in 2015, the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America (FCSA) is devoted to revolutionizing how fibromyalgia is cared for in this country by introducing a comprehensive holistic approach to care, family supports and support groups. The organization was founded by Mildred Velez, who has been living with fibromyalgia since 2007, in response to the lack of direct services for those living with fibromyalgia and to the dearth of dedicated medical care and support. Mildred, along with a dedicated board of trustees, has developed a concise and direct approach to helping those living with fibromyalgia and their families. The FCSA is dedicated to equality in care and bringing relief to all.
The FCSA's Board of Trustees are individuals who are emblematic of the community. Each represent the community served as either being a professional clinician directly working with fibromyalgia, an individual or a family member of someone living with fibro. As such, each trustee offers a unique perspective and is instrumental in the care work. — Dionisio
