Matthew R. D’Uva // Executive Director // International Association for the Study of Pain
Through the Noise is still reporting from ASAE headquarters and invited an association head to join us on the show — Matthew R. D’Uva, Executive Director of the International Assocation for the Study of Pain. IASP was founded in 1974 and now has chapters in 90 countries, which rotate hosting the “World Congress of Pain,” their biennial convention. IASP’s membership is comprised of scientists, clinicians, health-care providers, and policymakers and the organization brings these parties together to share advances and improve the adminstration of pain relief for people throughout the world. Mr. D’Uva tells of the IASP’s unusual founder — John J. Bonica who wrestled professionally while putting himself through medical school, and you won’t want to miss his responses to the WAG segment!
