About the Program
Established by The Mayday Fund 2004, the Mayday Pain & Society Fellowship: A Media and Policy Initiative trains physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, scientists, and legal scholars in the pain management community to more effectively communicate their work and raise awareness of and improve the treatment of acute and chronic pain. By encouraging pain experts to go beyond their own professional pursuits, the Mayday Fund hopes to increase dialogue about how to better reduce human suffering through a range of treatments, and ultimately have real impact on the lives of people in pain. The Fellowship is set to run through 2015.
