Pain BC is excited to be launching a new Ask the Expert Series on the Live Plan Be Forum. This is a live event where users can ask a special guest questions and receive answers in real time. If you want to ask a question, just make sure that you have registered for a free account on Live Plan Be, and are logged in during the time of the event so you can ask questions in the typed Q&A! Think of it as a live chat with an expert, in the model of a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA).

Our first guest in this new series is Dr. Alan Huber, a former ER doctor who lives with chronic pain. Although Dr. Huber is no longer a practicing ER doctor, he can help you better understand how the ER works and how it relates to chronic pain sufferers. He also can give you some tips on how to prepare and present your problem if you have to go to the ER that will hopefully make your visit a positive one. This will take place on September 24; get more details here. In case you missed it, our last Ask the Expert event was held on Reddit with Dr. Ethan Russo on the topic of medical cannabis. You can catch up on that conversation here.
