An Invitation from Your President

Dr. James S. Gessner

Join us for the 2017 Annual Meeting in Boston April 27 to 29! 

As you know, the Commonwealth continues to face an opioid epidemic. The Massachusetts Medical Society has been at the forefront of working toward effective approaches to care for those with substance use disorders and to mitigate the risk of new cases of addiction.

At this year’s Annual Education Program, titled “The Winding Road of Addiction: Hope on the Horizon,” we are taking a global approach to the crisis, bringing in international thought leaders to expand this important dialogue beyond state lines.

Experts from Sweden and Canada (as well as the world-renowned Treatment Research Institute in Philadelphia) will walk us through the science of addiction, evidence-based approaches to treatment of substance use disorder, and best practices for reducing the stigma that is too-often attached to addiction diseases.

Please join me for this special day of learning on April 28, and for the full three-day Annual Meeting’s important scientific and policy discussions. 

James S. Gessner, MD
Massachusetts Medical Society
