We congratulate them on their achievements and thank them for their contributions toward our mission of improved pain relief worldwide.”

In addition to the IASP awards, two recipients have earned one-year Fellowships in Clinical Pain Management at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand, through a program jointly sponsored by IASP and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists.
