PAINWeek®—the largest US pain conference for frontline practitioners—is celebrating its 11th annual meeting.

Lisa McElhaney, President of NADDI, said, “The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators is pleased to continue our partnership with PAINWeek, presenting for the 7th year. PAINWeek provides NADDI with an opportunity to reach frontline practitioners during a time when opioid misuse and abuse is ravaging our nation. NADDI is delighted to present PAINWeek attendees with a variety of up-to-date topics that will help to educate them in aspects of the current drug diversion trends and encourage them to spread the information to their colleagues in the field. The NADDI organization’s strength is built on networking and education between all stakeholders involved in the ongoing drug epidemic, and our healthcare partners are a very important part of that fight. It’s always a pleasure to present because we receive such a warm welcome from the PAINWeek attendees."
