U.S. Pain strongly believes that educating patients is integral to better health outcomes. We offer two types of webinars to help empower and inform our community.

Bimonthly webinars

In order to educate and better connect with our community, we host a webinar every two months on the third Tuesday of the month at 1 pm EST. The webinars are divided into two parts: first, an update from key departments, and second, a presentation from an outside expert on a topic related to pain.

Each webinar lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. For those who cannot attend live, the webinars are recorded and posted here. Have an idea for a keynote presenter? Email us!

If you are an ambassador, you can get credit for participating in webinars by completing the Ambassador Activity Form. While playback recordings can be listened to at any time, please note that ambassador credit is only available on the most recent webinar recording.

Educational webinars

Educational webinars are held as needed during the year and usually pertain to a timely topic. They may cover advocacy issues, pain management, or anything that is of importance to the pain community.


Upcoming webinars:

“Chronic pain and the risk of suicide: A staggering crisis and what to do about it” – PLEASE NOTE NEW TIME: Nov. 26 at 1 pm EST
