Kids and pain relief

Join us noon EST (11 a.m. CT, 9 a.m. PT) July 13 for a live chat with Dr. Paul Christo on dealing with pain in children. Children are just as susceptible to pain conditions as adults, including sickle cell pain, cancer pain, postoperative pain, fibromyalgia and CRPS. However, treating their pain can be challenging. Even pain treated by over-the-counter medications has its own set of concerns. Dr. Christo will answer your questions and concerns about these issues.

Christo is director of the Multidisciplinary Pain Fellowship Training Program at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He also has a radio talk show Saturday nights on WBAL.
