Had a fanboy moment at MEMC19! Met my personal hero and one of the best researchers you'll find on pain management @painfreeED. For me and so many others, his studies have led to practice-changing dosage considerations for analgesics in the ED. #MEMC19 #painmanagement pic.twitter.com/rfdqKX6ZyL— Anzal_Rehman (@rehman_anzal) September 24, 2019
