Boston Welcomes You

Message from the Governor of Massachusetts

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Lieutenant Governor Polito and I wish to welcome all participants and attendees to the International Society for the Study of Pain’s 2018 World Congress.

Lieutenant Governor Polito and I would like to extend our warmest appreciation to the International Society for the Study of Pain for actively bringing together scientists, clinicians, health-care providers, and policymakers to stimulate and support the study of pain. We greatly appreciate the work that physicians and scientists in the field have done to translate their research and findings into improved pain relief worldwide, as well as the exhibitors who are displaying new products and services today.

We express our gratitude for all participants in the conference for sharing their knowledge in the study of pain. Please accept our warmest wishes for another successful and enjoyable event.
