Treating pain in developing countries will be the focus of a special lecture by Ride for World Health tomorrow at noon in Founders Hall. The nonprofit cycling team is stopping in Tulsa as part of a 3,200 mile ride from San Diego, Calif., to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of global health issues.

“A Global Burden: Pain Management in the Developing World,” will bring attention to a number of factors that impact pain treatments. R4WH presents lectures throughout the trip to educate, advocate and create dialogue on the state of health care around the world. Students, faculty and staff are asked to RSVP for lunch by 3 p.m. today.

The OSU-CHS American Osteopathic College of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Club is sponsoring the event. The club will also host a fundraiser at Blue Rose Café from 5 to 9 p.m. tomorrow to support R4WH. The restaurant will donate a portion of all food purchases from customers who mention R4WH.
