Right after watching the impressive, moving performance for the first time, Ari and Howard were excited to share the 15 year history behind VR pain relief, and the promising future for VR in healthcare.

We fielded some impressive, thoughtful questions about future applications for specific diseases and conditions, including labor and birthing. We greatly appreciate Roundabout Theatre putting the struggle of veterans front and center. We hope this elevates the larger social dialog about the consequences of war and the way our healthcare system handles pain.
