Fifth Annual Penn State Addiction Symposium and Addiction Dinner

Dec. 10, 2019, in Hershey, Pa.

Keynote Address

The keynote address for the fifth annual Penn State Addiction Symposium, “Applying Science to Clinical Care – What it Really Means to Treat Addiction as a Chronic Illness,” will be given by Yngvild Olsen, MD, and Joshua Sharfstein, MD, from noon to 1 p.m. The two speakers co-authored the book “The Opioid Epidemic: What Everyone Needs to Know” (2019, Harvard University Press) as an accessible, nonpartisan overview of the causes, politics and treatments tied to the opioid crisis.

The talk will be live-streamed and recorded via Zoom. CME credit for Penn State Health physicians and nurses and APA credit will be available to those attending the keynote in person. The registration form will ask registrants to indicate their interest in receiving credits.

Lunch will be provided for those who register by Dec. 3, 2019. Late registrations for the keynote are welcome, but food cannot be guaranteed after that date.
