The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/t… It’s estimated that one in five people currently suffer with a persistent pain condition – whether that’s related to a long-standing illness, like arthritis, or a primary pain syndrome like fibromyalgia or migraines. And for many, they feel trapped by their pain. So I’m thrilled to be giving a talk that will break down some myths around pain and aid people in their recovery.” Julia graduated from the prestigious AECC in Bournemouth in 2012, having previously gained a degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Warwick.
