I pulled this from a work-related newsletter I got today. Looks really interesting, if you live in the area. (Portland, Oregon)
SPECIAL FEATURED LECTURE:
Nora Volkow, MD, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, considered “a general in the drug war”, well-known for her advocacy in preventing substance abuse in young people and named one of Time Magazine’s “100 World’s Most Influential People” in 2007. She is as responsible as anyone for showing that addiction really does cause changes in brain function; her work is a primary basis for considering it a disease, rather than poor choices or immoral behavior. She’s been a champion of bringing addiction science into mainstream medicine. You won’t want to miss her talk on Thursday, September 15.
