2017 National Conference on Alcohol and Opioid Use in Women & Girls: Advances in Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Research

October 26 - 27, 2017

Washington Marriott at Metro Center

Washington, DC

As a follow-up to the 2008 National Conference on Preventing Substance-exposed Pregnancies sponsored by the ICCFASD, this conference will be expanded to highlight the intersection of harmful drinking among women, HIV infection, and adverse maternal-child health outcomes. 

This is a national conference to:

1) Disseminate findings from the latest research on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of alcohol and other substance misuse among girls and women, with special emphasis on strategies to prevent HIV infection/progression and substance-exposed pregnancies

2) Publicize pertinent information from the 2016 Surgeon General’s Report on Addiction

3) Develop a coalition of stakeholder organizations and researchers to develop a blueprint for a coordinated public-private response to epidemic substance misuse among women and girls.


This conference is free of charge and open to the public
