The Addiction Medicine Conferences offer a great opportunity for physician, physician assistant and nurse practitioner students and residents to obtain more education about substance use disorders with content applicable across general medical as well as addiction specialty practices.

By donating to support addiction medicine education for those new to healthcare, you create opportunities to help them better respond to individuals with substance use disorders throughout their careers.
