The Mayday Fund today announced the selection of six experts in pain management to be Fellows of The Mayday Pain & Society Fellowship. The new Fellows come from across the United States and Canada, specializing in a wide range of health-care disciplines — including neuroscience, primary care, physical and rehabilitation medicine, patient advocacy, and pain policy — and one is a dentist, Brian L. Schmidt, DDS, MD, PhD, from NYUCD.
Dr. Schmidt is director of Bluestone Center for Clinical Research, director of New York University Oral Cancer Center, professor in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, professor in the department of Physiology and Neuroscience, and co-leader of epidemiology and cancer control at the New York University Cancer Institute. The Fellowship provides pain care leaders with skills to advocate for effective pain management. Fellows learn how to better communicate with the media, policymakers and others to raise visibility for their issues.
