I have yet to meet another individual who is as determined to improve healthcare and make a difference by driving legislative changes that will lead to positive pain care policies than Paul Gileno, founder & president of U.S. Pain Foundation. He is my hero, and in my opinion, so worthy of this award.  — Nicole

Paul is president of the Us pain foundation and I'm nominating him/them as health care collaborator: company, because they're a big foundation with over 90,000 members .!He is a pain patient who is also head of a healthcare company and he does so much for so many pain patients! He genuinely cares & helps with laws, meds,teaching, mentoring & more  — Suzanne
