Ending Opioid Use

  • 2360 Rayburn House Office Building (map)

Technology alternative to treating pain
Photobiomodulation (PBM), its Science and Promise
The first ever presentation to the United States Congress

The House Science, Space, and Technology Committee is sponsoring a briefing on technology that effectively treats pain and reduce the need for Opioids.  

Briefing will address technology provisions of the Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018 (OCRA), which directs funding to federal agencies to establish or expand programs dealing with prevention, treatment and recovery.

This technology uses light therapy, also known as Photobiomodulation (PBM), to treat the underlying conditions causing pain.

A panel of international experts will explain PBM and its role in eliminating the use of Opioids.  

PBM's effectiveness is documented in over 500 clinical trials and 9,000 research papers.

PBM is endorsed for use and insurance reimbursement by the national health programs in Australia, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom and most other European nations.

Other speakers on the day, 

Prof. Praveen R Arany
BDS, MDS, MMSc, PhD, University at Buffalo, NY

Annette Quinn
RN, MSN Program Manager, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center;
Hillman Cancer Center Radiation Oncology

You are invited to be part of this historic briefing.

PBM experts will be available for interviews after the briefing.

This event is free and open to the public!
