Our Quadranscentennial Anniversary - 25 Years of Providing Pain Education

The COVID pandemic has perhaps caused the most disruptive and innovative changes to the practice of medicine. Where has this left pain management? For our 25th annual symposium, we have decided to take a new look at some of the topics we covered in the past to assess where we are now and look forward to the future. As part of the quadranscentannial celebration, we have put together a week of state-of-the art, complimentary lectures prior to the full-day symposium on Friday, December 3.

Daily from Monday, November 29 through Thursday, December 2, grand rounds style lectures will be provided via a virtual platform during the lunch hour by faculty experts from around the U.S. Attendees can enjoy these lectures from the comfort of their office or home.

Access each of the lectures below via the provided registration link.  Register in advance to save your spot and receive a reminder the morning of the session.  Day-of registration is also available pending space.
