APhA Institute on Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies Registration

This conference is designed for those interested in learning more about pain management, substance abuse and addiction. The conference is held each year at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. For 2018 the dates are May 30 to June 3rd (but would leave on the 4th). This is a very small, tight knit conference, usually registering around 450 people. Past feedback from the conference has been positive, usually describing it as "eye opening" and "powerful."

There is one guaranteed seat available for the conference. If interested, please contact Dr. Franko (thomas.franko@wilkes.edu) no later than 5 pm on Tuesday November 28th. Interested students will be asked to write a one page essay detailing why they want to attend the conference, and must complete a short interview. Interviews will be scheduled early during finals week; essays must be submitted prior to your interview.

If not selected for the guaranteed seat, your name will be added to a wait list where it is possible that you may still be selected to attend the conference. Wait list students are picked through APhA, not Wilkes. All names must be registered through Wilkes.
