The cover of the June 4, 2007 issue of Newsweek announces, “The New War on Pain.” Inside writer Mary Carmichael reports on advances in pain treatment made both on the battlefield and here at home. She accurately notes, “Chronic pain is one of the most pervasive and intractable medical conditions in the United States, with one in five Americans afflicted.” You can read the full article: “New Research Into Pain Treatment.”
On Wednesday, May 30, at 1 p.m., ET, Carmichael will be doing an hour-long Live Talk online. She will answer questions about how medicine is waging a war against pain both on the battlefield and on the home front. Readers are invited to submit questions in advance.
