This year’s conference also will offer opioid sessions designed to help your center address this national crisis; hot-topic, interactive roundtable discussions; and keynote presentations from Scott Hamilton, Olympic gold medal-winning figure skater, and Alex Sheen, founder of the international social movement because I said I would.
