Mission

RELIEF is a freely available and independent news web site for patients and the general public that provides coverage of research on chronic pain, including plain language summaries of new findings, feature articles, interviews, webinars and podcasts.

Our mission is to provide everyone touched by or interested in the problem of chronic pain with knowledge and information about the latest research findings, so they can participate in and elevate public discourse about this important health and medical issue. This will raise awareness of chronic pain, rally support for research, and speed the development of new treatments.
