2020 State of the Art Conference

CSAM State of the Art brings together national experts to share frontiers of research, treatments, and policies in the field of Addiction Medicine. This year we do so under the overarching theme of Frontiers of Access to Care. Due to the pandemic, our conference will be entirely virtual, and for the first time will span across four weeks. Leading up to the plenaries, half-day workshops will be offered in primary care for individuals with addiction; implementation of treatment in correctional health; motivational interviewing, and addiction psychiatry. The CSAM Addiction Medicine Board Exam Preparation Workshop will be offered August 28th and 29th, and then be posted on the Education Center. Poster presentations will be available on demand.

Cancellations on or before August 28th are subject to a $100 cancellation fee. No refunds for cancellations after August 28th will be made. Substitutions may be arranged. All requests must be received in writing.
