Our objectives for the educational portion of the meeting are to learn about how the disease of addiction affects health care professionals and their families; to learn more about the value of minority issues as related to gender; to learn how we recover and stay sober; and how we can apply this information in our lives, family relations, and professional practice. In an effort to be responsive to feedback provided by prior CME participants, we have included curriculum to address: Women's Issues, inclusion of the international community in the presenter pool, and scientific based topics on sustaining recovery.
The 2013 Keystone LAC is offering medical and dental CME tracts promoting a theme of "Advocacy". We are waiting final confirmation from our keynote CME speaker, Director Gil Kerlikowske who heads President Obama's Office of National Drug Control Policy. Director Kerlikowske was nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 2007. He coordinates all aspects of Federal drug control programs and implementation of the President's National Drug Control Strategy.
Mr. Kerlikowske received the American Medical Association's, Dr. Nathan Davis Award for Outstanding Government Service in 2011.
Mr. Kerlikowske holds a B.A. and a M.A. in criminal justice as well as a Honorary Doctor in Humane Letters from the University of South Florida.
In addition to this speaker, the conference has been approved for 10 hours of CME. A diverse and interesting panel of presenters have agreed to speak on topics including Sex Addiction, Emotional Sobriety, Marijuana-Laws-Medical, Sexual Trauma and Abuse, Eating Disorders, My Doctor-My Pusher, Reducing Malpractice Claims in Recovery, When Your PHP Fails to Exist, and which Social Factors Predict Length of Recovery.
Dental CME will include some of these speakers as well as several other speakers still being confirmed.
