Partners4Pain Better, Together

Partners4Pain is an exciting collaboration between patients, community members, organizations and researchers. We bring people together to listen, learn, develop and evaluate creative solutions for the pain and opioid crisis.

Our focus is on back and neck pain experienced by People of Color, and those with less financial resources.

We acknowledge that the preferred terminology/language to describe one’s identity may differ among individuals and over time.
