About the Session

The National Pain Advocacy Center (NPAC),, is a new nonprofit advocacy group founded by and for people living with pain. We work to advance the health and human rights of people in pain and envision a world in which pain is treated equitably and effectively so that all people living with pain can lead full and productive lives.

This talk will feature NPAC founder and President, Kate Nicholson, and a panel that includes representatives of our Science and Policy advisory council and our Community Leadership Council to address NPAC’s focus, our work, and how we work together as a coalition of scientists and clinicians, health policy and civil rights experts, and people with lived experience.
