Online Pain Course

I am writing to you on the behalf on the University of Regina's Online Therapy Unit, which is associated with the Department of Psychology. We are a Service, Education, and Research Unit that has offered online Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to residents of Saskatchewan for the last 5 years. We are currently offering an online Pain Course, which offers treatment to individuals who are experiencing depression and anxiety associated with chronic pain. The course is 8 weeks in duration and encompasses 5 skills based lessons. Clients are also attached to a Guide who is a PhD Candidate (Psychology) to offer support and guidance throughout the program.

We are looking to spread the word of this program's immediate availability to potential clients. I have prepared a 5-10 minute presentation about the Pain Course and wish to share it with interested stakeholders of the pain population. I am wondering if there are any upcoming meetings or opportunities to meet with physician groups to share my brief informational presentation?
