Lectures & Educational Activities
The faculty and staff of the Pain Research Center are involved in many activities focused on educating and communicating with colleagues, practitioners, patients, and the community on topics regarding pain management, pain measurement, and other areas of expertise. These activities take place at PRC, elsewhere on the University of Utah campus, and in other locations in the UofU community. Frequently members of the PRC faculty are invited to the national and international communities.
