PAINWeekEnd (PWE) Atlanta on April 29 and 30, at the Loews Atlanta Hotel at 1065 Peachtree Street NE, will be an educational and exciting 2-day program. The DEA reports, according to a March 15th post on the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, that Georgia is #9 among the top 10 states with the highest number of armed robberies of pharmacies.

PAINWeekEnd Atlanta will provide busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 12.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain, and give them ample opportunity to network and ask key opinion leaders the questions they want answered.
