Our Women in Learning and Leadership (WILL)  Webinar on Thursday May 21st, 2020.

WILL has been established to provide a platform to inform, inspire, and promote women in academic, research, clinical, and policy environments related to the field of pain.  We also encourage men to be engaged in this platform to raise awareness and perspectives for/from men.
