The Pain Research, Education and Policy (PREP) program within Tufts Public Health is honored to be one of the global sites selected to host a world premier simulcast of LIFE Before Death. 


Our screening of this award-winning, multinational documentary on the global crisis in undertreated pain is open to all who are interested - clinicians as well as the general public -- at no cost. 

DATE: February 2, 2012
TIME: 3-5:15 PM
PLACE: Wolff Auditorium, Tufts Medical Center, Washington Street, Boston, MA

The film was made possible through support of several organizations, including the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), the Mayday Fund , and the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). 

This event is in conjunction with WHO's annual World Cancer Day on February 4.

We are pleased that Judy Foreman, a nationally syndicated health journalist and author, will open with an introductory overview.  After the screening, a panel of palliative care clinicians and PREP faculty, joined by Ms Foreman, will present their reflections and conduct a conversation with the audience.
