About the Partners4Pain Study:

Partners4Pain is a community-engaged research project led by Dr. Roni Evans, DC, PhD, and Dr. Brent Leininger, DC, PhD from the Integrative Health & Wellbeing Research Program at the University of Minnesota. The project aims to include individuals with pain who are more likely to experience health disparities and are often underrepresented in research.

The study involves a collaborative team of over 30 community members, leaders, healthcare providers, and researchers with diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Community partner organizations such as the YMCA of the North, the HUE-MAN Partnership, the YWCA St. Paul, and the University of Minnesota’s Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC) play vital roles in connecting the project to community members.
