The research we do in our lab affords us many opportunities to speak with persons who experience chronic pain. It's actually quite rare to find one that isn't aware of at least one negative stereotype about persons with pain.

Just click the Chatelaine bunny to see the article "The scary truth about our pain problem". Thanks to Chatelaine for covering this important topic!
