The Aging and Integrative Pain Assessment and Management Initiative | AI-PAMI

Arts for the Aging is proud to collaborate with the Aging and Integrative Pain Assessment and Management Initiative (AI-PAMI) at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville to produce a video series at the intersection of the arts, aging, and pain management.

In this series, Arts for the Aging teaching artists and researchers from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts explore the function and efficacy of the arts in pain management through interactive arts workshops and lectures led by experts in the fields of art therapy and creative aging.

AI-PAMI is a comprehensive project addressing non-opioid pain management in adults ages 50 and older living in Northeast Florida. The goal of the project is to advance innovative pain education and patient care focused on multimodal and integrative pain management. The project encompasses community outreach, education, and research.


View the video series and learn more about AI-PAMI on their website. Find video previews, presenter information, and supplementary material for each video below. Audio/video editing is by Arts for the Aging teaching artist, Manny Arciniega.

*Audio descriptions and closed captions are included in each video.

Funding for this project is generously provided by the Florida Blue Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, and the Nancy Peery Marriott Foundation.
