As one of the first conferences devoted to pain medicine, the Napa Pain Conference (NPC) has provided unparalleled networking with leaders in clinical practice, research, and industry for decades.
Eric J. Grigsby, MD, MBA founded NPC in 1990 while creating the UC Davis pain management program. Dr. Grigsby recognized the need for a conference where everyday practitioners could get together, build a community, and share their stories, successes, and challenges in treating persons with chronic pain.
