Congratulations to Melanie Noel and Mark Petter for winning 1st and 2nd place for clinical posters at the Canadian Pain Society Conference in Whistler this past week. 

Melanie’s poster was on the influence of anxiety on children’s pain memories and subsequent pain experience. This poster is based on her PhD dissertation project, which she successfully defended on May 10, 2012. 

Mark was presenting on a student-led cognitive behavioural therapy group for children with recurrent abdominal pain. In addition to this, Mark has just completed data collection for his dissertation project looking at mindfulness in adolescents.
