Lecture 4: Health Disparaties in Later Life Pain and Disability


sibillePresented by Kimberly Sibille, PhD

Director of Clinical Translational Research at PRICE & Assistant Professor in the Department of Aging and Geriatric Research at the College of Medicine

Racial and ethnic group differences in clinical and experimental pain and pain treatment are well documented. Significantly less is known about the factors contributing to racial and ethnic group differences in clinical pain, experimental pain, and pain-related resilience. Dr. Sibille will review current research efforts in the UPLOAD studies specific to health disparities and chronic pain organized within the NIA’s Health Disparities Research Framework. Areas of need specific to future research efforts will also be explored.


1) Improve appreciation for the complex array of factors contributing to health disparities in the experience and treatment of chronic pain.

2) Promote awareness of the different risk and resilience factors that have been identified as associated with ethnic/race group differences in pain.

3) Discuss possible next steps to improve understanding and health outcomes for all individuals experiencing chronic musculoskeletal pain.
