Over recent years, the pain community has lost several incredibly stellar clinicians all of whom dedicated their lives to caring for patients with chronic pain syndromes. Here to memorialize their contributions and lifelong advocacy for patients is another preeminent scholar, researcher, and patient advocate, Dr. Steven Passik. Thank you Dr. Passik, for sharing this heartfelt dedication…


Sung to the tune of Abraham, Martin and John written by D. Holler (1968) and Sung by Dion.

Today, 2/22/19, the 2nd anniversary of the untimely death of Ken Kirsh, I wanted to remember and honor him and so many of the wonderful colleagues we have recently lost including Simon Budman, PhD; Howie Smith, MD, Mitchell Max, MD, Dan Brookoff, MD, Arthur Lipman, PharmD, Margo McCaffery, MS, and Ken Kirsh, PhD.
