#Re-think Addiction - UD & Miami Valley Hospital Healthcare Symposium
08:00 AM - 01:30 PM
Location: Kennedy Union

It seems a day does not go by that we do not see headlines related to drug addiction, overdose related deaths and the cost of the present “opioid epidemic.”

Clearly, we are in the depths of a deep and complicated problem. How do we begin to address the situation? While the news is troubling, there are also clear points of light as new and innovative approaches to both understanding and addressing addiction are developing. The focus of the 2018 University of Dayton and Miami Valley Hospital Healthcare Symposium is “#Re-think Addiction”. An exceptional line-up of speakers will discuss these various models and innovative practices.

Committed speakers and presentations include:

  • Clinical Medicine/Population Health/Innovative Practices – A 3 Buckets Model to Approaching Addiction– Dr. Michael Dohn and Haley Riegel (Dayton and Montgomery County Dept. of Public Health)
  • The Neuroscience of Addiction – Dr. Nicole Labor
  • Primary Care – On the Front Lines of the Opioid Epidemic – Dr. Joseph Scherger
  • How are our healthcare systems responding to the epidemic?
    • Dr. Nancy Pook – Kettering Health Network
    • Dr. Jennifer Hauler - Premier Health Partners
    • Dr. Randall James - Dayton VA Medical Center
    • Dr. Tahira Adelekan – Dayton Children’s Medical Center
