Come hear about the past, present, and future of pain killers. Who discovered them? What risks of self-experimentation did they take? Advances in pharmaceuticals and opiates have brought both relief from pain and the harmful effects of over-prescription and abuse. Author, historian and presenter Brandy Schillace is Senior Research Associate and Public Engagement Fellow for the Dittrick Museum of Medical History and Editor-in-Chief of The BMJ’s Medical Humanities.
