Linda Porter Ph.D.

Dr. Porter directs the NINDS Office of Pain Policy and has been recognized for her work by the President’s Award from the American Academy of Pain Management, NIH Director’s Awards, and the Emma and John Bonica Public Service Award from the American Pain Society. Dr. Porter was instrumental in developing the National Pain Strategy, which calls for education for patients and physicians and improved access to quality pain care. It was developed to change the culture of pain awareness and management through an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to pain care, which will reduce our reliance on opioid prescribing.
