On behalf of the Wisconsin Society of Addiction Medicine (WISAM), we would like to invite you to attend the annual, state-wide conference, entitled: “Curtailing the Impact of Opioid and Other Addictive Disorders in Wisconsin:  Interdisciplinary Collaboration” on Thursday, September 29 – Friday September 30, 2016 at the Pyle Center in Madison, WI.  Please mark your calendars!

The conference will feature Wisconsin speakers from a variety of fields involved in curtailing opioid and other addictive disorders:  legislative, public health, law enforcement, legal, treatment and prevention, and people in recovery. There will also be 8 workshops, each occurring twice. American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) members will be able to take advantage of a reduced conference fee. Visit www.ASAM.org/membership for details about ASAM membership (for physicians and non-physicians). The conference will provide up to 12.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Creditswhich can be counted toward the American Board of Addiction Medicine certification maintenance.

This conference is ideal for: physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, social workers, mental health and substance abuse counselors, law enforcement, and other professionals interested in the field of substance misuse prevention and treatment.

There are a limited number of seats available.  Online registration opens August 8, 2016. Please see attached brochure for conference details and registration information, also located at http://www.fammed.wisc.edu/wisam-conference.

We will also hold two post-conference workshops on Saturday, October 1, 2016:  SCOPE of Pain on safe and competent opioid prescribing, sponsored by Boston University; and the ASAM’s Buprenorphine Certification training for physicians. Please see the conference brochure or website above for details and registration information. Since the post-conference workshops are provided through Boston University and ASAM, they each have their own separate registration process – registration is open for the post-conference workshops.
