Dr. Neel Mehta, assistant professor of anesthesiology and medical director of Pain Management at Weill Cornell Medicine, shared his insights on pain management and the the nation's opioid crisis at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) on February 22. 

Dr. Mehta discussed the opioid crisis from both an individual and a global health perspective. Topics covered included alternatives to opioids for managing pain, recognizing addiction in a loved one, and strategies for communicating effectively with a physician.
