In our interactive, learning-focused format, nationally renowned faculty will provide best practice information specifically designed to address the everyday challenges of improving outcomes for your patients.

As always, our meeting offers an outstanding opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and networking. With question and answers time allotted for every session, there is ample time to share best practices and find solutions to your most difficult clinical challenges.

New for 2020 we are offering 3 optional, Post-conference workshops: Telepsychiatry, Addiction and Medical Cannabis. (1.5-2 CME/CEs available for each workshop)
