ABOUT THE UPLiFT CONFERENCE

The purpose of the UPLiFT Conference is to connect people across disciplines and pain conditions to further the equitable integration of the lived experience of pain into all aspects of pain research, education, advocacy, and treatment. UPLiFT will share ways people living with pain can take charge of their own health through supported self-management, as well as connect them to valuable education, resources, and skills in pain advocacy, research partnerships, and the science of pain in ways that are accessible and without jargon. UPLiFT will also connect people living with pain, clinicians, and researchers who are interested in partnering together in research and clinical care with best practices, resources, and support.
