GWIA – Red Lawhern, Patient Advocate and his supportive Opioid research

If there is even one reason we chronic pain warriors can ever even get one rx of opioids these days it’s because of Red.  He has been fighting a relentless battle to help people arm themselves with data to support pain driven access to proper and needed medicines especially opioids.  Red has very strong opinions that may come through as overly forceful but the goal s to help you during this full pendulum swing of politics against effective pain management.  Also, please give the phone connection a pass this week as the interview starts a bit rough but indeed gets better.  [EP8]
