[#DIV28SUPER] Addiction programming at the 2017 APA Convention

Sent on behalf of Bettina Hoeppner


With the APA 2017 convention only 2.5 weeks away (August 3-6), I wanted to share with you a brochure we put together of the addiction-related programming taking place this year at APA.  This program provides the integrated programs for Divisions 50 (Addiction) and 28 (Psychopharmacology and Substance Abuse), and highlights the activities supported by two R13 grants (funded by NIAAA and NIDA) to disseminate state of the art addiction research to the community, and to foster the development of the next generation of addiction researchers. 

Namely, these events are:

 ·       Friday, August 4, 4:00-5:50pm - "Early Career Investigators Poster Session and Social Hour"

Location: Marriott Marquis, Salon 5

o   NIAAA R13 Supported Poster Presenters          (20 presenters)

 If you are attending APA this year, I warmly invite you to join us for these exciting events!  In fact, bring a colleague or six, and help us spread the word!   We'd love to see you there.

Students and young investigators: next year, we are also planning on presenting a symposium on career development.  If you have suggestions for specific topics you'd like to see covered, or specific speakers you would like to meet in this fashion, please email me at bhoeppner@mgh.harvard.edu.


Looking forward to seeing you in Washington D.C.!


All the best,

Bettina Hoeppner
