One of the country’s best patient-centered free pain expositions will be held in Northbrook, Illinois on August 13.
The 4th annual Midwest Pain Treatment Education Expo is the brainchild of Gracie Bagosy-Young, a nationally-known Chronic Pain Patient Advocate. It is designed to allow doctors and patien
ts to discuss the latest advances in pain management and complementary therapies. Local groups working to help the pain community will also be in attendance
“It gives patients the chance to talk to top pain physicians for free, try some new techniques and learn about medical cannabis among many other things,” Bagosy-Young said.
The all day event-which is being presented by Oska Wellness- will be held at the Hilton Chicago/Northbrook in Northbrook, Illinois. Doors open at 8 am. A free lunch will be provided.
If you don’t live in the Midwest, or can’t make it to the event, you register for the free online live stream. (Click here)
