Her first presentations titled: "Enhancing the art of peer review" (Cambron JA, Boulanger K, Porcino A), was a how-to workshop focused on the peer-review process for new reviewers of scientific journal articles. It included the recommended qualities of reviewers, the overall review process, what to include in the review, and how to submit a review.

She also moderated a panel discussion on "Massage in the community; informing public health," and spoke on the topic "What to expect at your first research conference" during a "first-timers" luncheon. In addition, she facilitated both a networking lunch on writing case reports and a small group session for massage therapy research agenda planning.
