Congratulations to Pain Research, Education and Policy Program (PREP) student, Amy Vaz for an Amy Vaz Capstone Presentationinnovative and informative capstone project and presentation, Chronic Pain: The Good Day Diary.

As a nurse and through her studies within the PREP program, Amy saw an unmet need for those living with chronic pain. For her capstone, Amy envisioned a Smartphone application that would enable individuals with chronic pain to chronicle and track their “good” days. Amy explained that there are currently a number of products on the market that track pain and negative symptoms for chronic pain patients, but none that focus on good days or days with less pain. Amy plans to take her capstone project to the next level, by pursuing market research and product development.

Stay tuned for more from Amy Vaz.
