The panel featured current PREP student, Marta Illueca, MD, sharing insights on spirituality and religion-based therapies across the continuum of pain and suffering; as well as PREP guest lecturer, Beth Murinson Hogans, MD discussing evidence-based recommendations for acupressure versus trigger-point massage.
