    We are excited to announce the first ever Louisiana Society of Addiction Medicine’s Annual CME Meeting.

    This year our meeting will be virtual and is scheduled for October 17, starting at 8:30AM. We will offer 4 hours of continuing medical education credits and will discuss the important issues that concern our profession today.

    The theme of the meeting will be “Addiction Trends in Treatment in Louisiana". Our goal will be to understand different evidence-based treatment options for SUDs and how to advise our patients on the treatment that best fits their needs.

    We hope you are able to join us for a day of learning and collaboration!
