Description
The Mayday Fund is dedicated to alleviating the incidence, degree and consequence of human physical pain. The Fund was established in 1992 to further Shirley Steinman Katzenbach's commitment to social and medical causes, specifically the treatment of human physical pain. The name Mayday commemorates the date of Mrs. Katzenbach's birth and is the international signal for help, taken from the French "m'aidez" (help me). The Trustees of the Mayday Fund recognize that while excellent research on the treatment of pain has been completed, the existing knowledge is not being effectively applied. The Mayday Fund is committed to closing this gap. The Fund provides financial support in the form of grants and fellowships to organizations and individuals. The collection includes training curriculum, materials and manuals created for use in workshops designed to enhance and increase the skills of family members and health care professionals in the management of pain. Also included are progress notes and final reports on pain management programs funded by Mayday grants as well as various newsletters produced by other pain management resources.
