At the USASP, we believe that diverse voices and approaches are required to address the substantial challenge and cost of reducing the burden of pain.  We strive to entwine diverse perspectives into all aspects of our work, including our membership and leadership, our interactions with other professional organizations and the community, our educational activities and engagement with early career investigators, and our national role in advocating for improved pain relief. Therefore, the USASP will continue to support incorporating individuals from underrepresented and disadvantaged/underprivileged backgrounds to enhance our diversity, promote equity, and model an inclusive and accessible organization.
