Unveiling August 2025

Many of you joined us for the 30th Napa Pain Conference and I remain grateful to share this milestone with you. It was truly an amazing event!!

I want to share that I have decided to take a one-year hiatus to plan the evolution of the 2025 Napa Pain Conference which will return in August of 2025. 

When I began in 1990, we were one of only a handful of pain meetings in the United States. Our goal with the Napa Pain Conference was to meet the needs that were unmet – we wanted to put on the best, unbiased pain meeting on the West Coast. 

We met that goal and then some. In the last thirty years, we have countless faculty that are truly giants in the field of pain. We have had the opportunity to learn from multiple Nobel Prize winners. We created and fostered partnerships and ideas that grew into devices and solutions in practice today. 

The Napa Pain Conference was the first pain meeting to transition online during COVID-19, educating learners from over 40 countries and every US state. Since then, Neurovations Education has taught over 6,400 professionals, providing a mix of cutting-edge and essential education offering over 50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ available online for any-time learning.

Throughout this, the Napa Pain Conference has remained unbiased and true to our mission, we have brought stellar education to our colleagues in pain management – and I have this amazing community to thank for the continued support. 

My hope is to craft a solution or initiative that aligns seamlessly with our mission of enhancing the quality of life for patients with pain-related challenges. This isn’t about innovation for the sake of innovation; it’s about leveraging cutting-edge advancements to make a tangible, positive impact on patients’ well-being. My intent is to create something deeply rooted in our organization’s mission – products, services, or approaches that prioritize patients’ needs, their comfort, and their journey toward improved health. I hope that together, we can catalyze meaningful change.

While I am excited about the opportunity for reflection and strategic planning during this hiatus, I recognize the value our annual conference holds for our community. Your opinion and input is crucial. We will be reaching out throughout the year for input. 

Thank you for being a part of three amazing decades with the Napa Pain Conference. We look forward to seeing you in August of 2025 for the re-imagined Napa Pain Conference!
