Ken Taylor

Patient Leader

I am a caregiver, author, and TV personality raising awareness for chronic pain issues and challenges. I also serve on the board of advisory for Pain Pathways Magazine, serve on the media committee for Consumer Pain Advocacy Task Force. I have been on the board of directors for the International Pain Foundation since its creation in 2006 and currently serve as the vice president. I have been advocating for my wife and other patients by attending medical appointments with them, but also speaking at pain conferences, testifying on legislation that impacts patients, and representing caregivers for pain patients in the media. I created the #ipainPOP movement and "I Have The Nerve To Be Heard".

I couldn't NOT nominate Ken for this award. Without a doubt Ken is the one I'll turn to to laugh when I'm having a rough day. He always has a way of making one laugh at a certain situation or to see the positive. His stories approach serious subjects with a sense of humor that keep you laughing.  — Ross
