Dr. Clint Adams and Other GME Leaders Discuss Addiction at a White House Symposium

President Adams was a speaker on the White House livestream of “Medicine Responds to Addiction II” Symposium on October 25, 2016.  The Symposium brought together federal partners and national leaders from medical schools, residency, and fellowship programs to advance addiction medicine education and training and to explore Centers of Excellence in Addiction Medicine models.
