He is the spouse of a chronic facial pain patient. He has advocated for pain patients and their family members for twenty years with online research, physician referrals, authoring of websites and critical commentaries. Red is the Corresponding Secretary for the Alliance for the Treament of Intractable Pain (ATIP.)
