Pain@Otago Webinar: Persistent pain in refugees and marginalised populations

Wednesday, 19 February 2020

Speaker: Alicia J. Emerson, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, FAAOMPT

Alicia’s research explores how the geopolitical, historical, and societal spectrum impacts marginalized populations’ experiences with persistent musculoskeletal pain management.
