September 15, 2014•15 min
Host: Mimi Secor, MS, MEd, FNP
The annual cost of chronic pain in the United States is as high as $635 billion a year, which is more than the yearly costs for cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Over 100 million Americans are affected by chronic pain, and by extension, pain is the number one diagnosis in primary care. Joining host Mimi Secor to discuss new insights on this ever-present malady is Brett Snodgrass, Family Nurse Practitioner in private practice in Bartlett, TN specializing in pain management and palliative care. She is President of the Greater Memphis Area Advanced Practice Nurses, and also hosts a popular blog called The NP Mom.
