Chantel Burkitt is a clinical research scientist with Gillette who focuses on pain management. She was recently honored by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal as a Health Care Hero in the Innovator category for her pioneering research on pain in children with disabilities. Originally from Canada, Chantel is currently training for her first marathon.
“Pain impacts your sleep, your mood, your ability to learn. It takes up all of your energy. I get really passionate about helping patients who aren’t able to talk about or ask for help for their pain. My dream is to continue work at Gillette to provide more resources around chronic pain management and to provide the most positive and least stressful care possible for patients and their families.”
