Chronic Pain Toronto was founded in November 2012 by Kevin Hall, who serves as Executive Director. Mr. Hall has suffered from chronic pain since 2008 following a hit-and-run accident and has gained a deep appreciation for and knowledge of the debilitating pain and day-to-day challenges faced by those who suffer.
Unable to continue his previous vocation in the financial sector, he initially set out to educate himself regarding options for treatment. What he found was a significant lack of understanding and numerous impediments to access the right physicians for diagnosis and treatment. Since that time Mr. Hall has conferred with hundreds of individuals connected to the world of pain management spanning from other sufferers, their families and friends, medical practitioners, pharmaceutical industry representatives, legal professionals and members of law enforcement.
