2019 VASAM ANNUAL MEETING

Visit the nation's Capital this autumn for the 2019 VASAM Annual Meeting just outside of Washington DC in Fairfax, Virginia!

The VASAM mission is to provide a medium for Virginia physicians and medical trainees with special interests in addiction medicine to meet and address issues of mutual interest. At our annual meeting, we seek to enable networking with colleagues in addiction medicine while providing a forum for sharing ideas between Virginia addictionists, especially regarding clinical management strategies and strategies for interfacing with managed care organizations.
