You can help

The Governor’s Institute improves the lives of people with substance use disorder problems by ensuring that doctors and other healthcare providers are equipped to prevent, identify, and treat these disorders. These conditions often go undiagnosed or ignored, resulting in enormous problems and costs for individuals and their communities.

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. Individual or business contributions can be made to support full or partial scholarships. Choose to make an impact TODAY!
