AAPM President and Proove Medical Advisory Board Member, Dr. Lynn Webster, will be moderating a workshop on safe opioid prescribing practices.

"We are thrilled to be a part of the AAPM’s Annual Meeting. As the premiere industry forum, we are excited to share and present our clinical data on how our Proove Genetic tests have been helping pain medicine professionals throughout the country improve the selection, dosing, and evaluation of medications. We will exhibit how Proove helps identify patients at risk for tolerance and misuse of medications, and how we have been creating efficiency within the healthcare system, while improving safety and decreasing risks associated with pain medicine therapies," stated Brian Meshkin, President of Proove Biosciences.
Proove will again be the only company presenting data on the genetics of pain medicine. During the poster session, Proove will be presenting data correlating genetic variations with co-occurring psychiatric disorders among chronic pain patients taking narcotics.
