NEXT 2019 Keynote Speaker: Justin Minyard, US Army Master Sergeant (Retired)
Justin Minyard's long and challenging battle with chronic pain began when he was injured on September 11, 2001, while serving as a first responder at the Pentagon. To manage his increasing pain, Minyard was prescribed increasing amounts of opioids, eventually leading to a multiyear dependency that worsened after he was forced to medically retire from the Army. In 2011, Minyard began to regain control of his life by shifting to a more balanced approach to pain management. Minyard is now an active hand and road cyclist and an advocate for improving chronic pain treatment.
