Dr.Joe Schwartz on the science of pain

Dr Joe Schwarz launches the series with a lecture on the history of our chemical conquest of pain.  He is the Director of the McGill Office for Science and Society and an award-winning teacher. He's also written several bestselling science books and appeared hundreds of times on Discovery Channel, CBC, CTV and in many other media.

Dr. Joe Schwartz spoke with Sonali Karnick about the chemical history of painkillers.
