CSAM-SMCA 30th Conference October 25-27, 2018 a huge success!
Our 30th conference was our biggest and best! Invited speakers, over 100 presenters, 40 poster presentations, 13 exhibitors and close to 700 attendees came together to make this conference our biggest and best ever. Plenary presentations on the legalization of cannabis, SMART therapy, multidisciplinary teams and the impact of alcohol on indigenous communities were thought-provoking and timely. The poster session was filled with many discussions of research findings and project ideas. The many scientific sessions covered numerous topics from treatments to scientific advances and more.
Thanks to all the attendees for being part of the conference. We hope you went home with new knowledge, perspectives on addiction care, and a renewed interest in caring for people with addictions.
Special thanks to Karen Mellor and Marilyn Dorizo for their excellent organization of all aspects of the conference.
Thanks also to Christy Sutherland, Patrick McDougall, and Julie Foreman for the organization of our sold-out tours, Dr. Larina Reyes-Smith for the organization of Fundamentals and all our invited speakers and session presenters.
