Understanding novel non-opioid pain therapies

Opioids, though very affective in managing specific pain states, are extremely dangerous and often lead to overdose. The dual chronic pain and opioid epidemic outline the need for novel, non-opioid therapies to treat pain. Here, students will understand current opioid shortcomings, the landscape of emerging pain therapies, and the future of pain management in the United States.
