Background Information

HELEN DEARMAN received her undergraduate degree from Loma 

Linda University, School of Allied Health Professions, Department 

of Respiratory Care. Ms. Dearman has chronic pain from a fall that 

resulted in a broken back in three places. For fi fteen years her frac- 

tures went undetected during which time she learned how to live 

with chronic pain. To date, her treatments have been varied, includ- 

ing eleven back surgeries and an intrathecal drug infusion pump. 

Her personal experiences with pain led her to numerous experiences 

working throughout the country with pain organizations dedicated 

to helping people with chronic pain from the patient’s perspective. 

She also hosted a weekly international internet radio show (Pain 

Tamers on Voice America, 2004-2006), and patient conferences 

(Houston’s fi rst patient-oriented “Living with Chronic Pain” confer- 

ence with keynote Speakers Jerry Lewis and Patch Adams), and 

lecturing/teaching. In her leadership role, she has participated in 

numerous activities that include: Medtronic, Inc.’s media training 

with Jerry Lewis for the Tame the Pain campaign; task force member 

to the Texas Medical Center Pain and Palliative Care Group; and 

speaker at state press conferences addressing the preferred drug list 

for Medicaid patients and legislation regarding Medicaid patients 

and their ability to receive pain medication. She is a guest faculty 

on an interdisciplinary pain course offered by the University of Texas 

Health Science Center at Houston. She has also been featured in 

the March-April, 2004, issue of FDA Consumer Magazine, Manag- 

ing Chronic Pain and the spring 2006 magazine issue of the Ameri-
