Philip A. Spiegel was a medical administrator and researcher at Health Education for Living in Pain (HELP), an organization dedicated to the study and treatment of chronic pain. As a person who lived with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) his work had a very personal connection. At HELP, he was instrumental in research related to the use of telemedicine in pain management and presented his findings at the IASP World Congress on Pain in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Philip was never complacent and simply refused to submit to his disease. He always focused on the future and applied his love of science and instinctive ability in technology to the study of chronic pain.
