ReACH Director, Dr. Barbara J. Turner featured on Texas Public Radio's Texas Standard

On Friday, March 31st, Dr. Barbara J. Turner, the Director of the Center for Research to Advance Community Health (ReACH) will be featured on the Texas Public Radio show Texas Standard to discuss a recently published study that looks at how much the Hispanic community knows about chronic pain.  Dr. Turner and her team conducted a population-based survey representing 8.8 million Hispanic residents of five Southwestern states who did not have chronic pain.  The data from this study reveal serious gaps in knowledge about chronic pain including misunderstanding about relying on narcotics to treat the disease. This is the first study to reveal poor knowledge about chronic pain in a large population of Americans and reinforces the urgency of launching a broad-based educational campaign about chronic pain and its care.
