Jennifer Jacobs, MD. practiced family medicine in Seattle for 25 years, was on the advisory board of the NIH Office of Alternative Medicine, and is a clinical assistant professor in epidemiology at the University of Washington.

Sarah is a columnist for the Pain News Network and contributes to online community for pain sufferers, The Mighty. She has lived with debilitating nerve pain for over a decade.
