Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend my first PainWeek conference in Milwaukee. As an Ambassador for the U.S. Pain Foundation, I try my best to participate in several events throughout the year. When I happen to come across a post from PainWeek’s Instagram account about a conference taking place in Wisconsin, I contacted them about having a table in their exhibit.
PAINWeekEnd™ Regional Conference Series is comprised of regional, 1-day professional conferences for healthcare professionals in all disciplines with an interest in pain management. The goal of the PAINWeekEnd programs is to provide a conveniently located preview of 6 course hours (out of 120+) that attendees can expect to see at the PAINWeek® National Conference.
Their target audience is Frontline clinicians: physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists.
I was approved to set-up a table with information that the attendees could learn more about the various programs offered through the U.S. Pain Foundation. I spent all day Saturday meeting with individuals in the medical field from Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. I also handed out bags, pens, pain warrior bracelets, magazines, and jar grips. Which judging by the almost empty table, was a huge hit!
