20th Annual Maine Pain Conference 

Deaths involving drug overdoses have become a serious public health crisis in Maine. Prescription drug abuse is presently at the forefront, but far from the only cause. How did we get here? The 20th Annual Pain Conference will explore social determinants that have a bearing on drug abuse, as well as the impact the new Opioid legislation might have on individuals seeking treatment and the health care professionals who are caring for them.

Join us May 5th at the beautiful Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center in mid-coast Maine for Understanding Pain: How We Got Here - How We Go Forward.

Registration fees are as follows:
$150 - Physicians (MHC Members)
$185 - Physicians (Non-members)
$130 - Residents/Fellows (MHC Members)
$160 - Residents/Fellows (Non-members)
$100 - General Admission (MHC Members)
$125 - General Admission (Non-members)
