On a mission to promote pain education, our next pit stop was at a rural/semi-urban setting in the town of Kalyan(near Mumbai). This eye hospital caters to over a 100 patients per day with majority of them being treated completely free of cost. Members from the entire team in the hospital including doctors, nurses , optometrists and administrators participated in the workshop to have a better understanding about pain using a new and innovative methodology.
