Our History

The Napa Pain Conference was founded in 1990 by Dr. Eric Grigsby to address the education needs of a burgeoning, but still new, field of medicine — Pain Management. In the decades since, the Napa Pain Conference has earned a worldwide reputation for fostering innovation, by bringing together seminal thinkers with the next generation of problem-solvers in clinical medicine and scientific development.
