Hawaii Addiction Conference 2016

Dr. Barton will be discussing Medical Cannabis with Dr. Gerald McKenna, a long time respected local Addiction Psychiatrist, in the afternoon of the HAC 2016. 

The University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine and the Departments of Psychiatry and Family Medicine are proud to present the 2016 Hawaii Addictions Conference, Hawaii’s premiere training, education, networking, and skill-building opportunity centering on addictions. This year’s theme of “Emerging Trends in Treatment and Addiction” will focus on new horizons in the diagnosis and treatment of addictions, breakthroughs in evidence-based research, the changing climate of drug policy, and the current culture of patient care.

When:  Friday, May 6, 2016 from 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM (HST)

Who should attend?

  • Physicians and Clinicians
  • Social Workers
  • Substance Abuse Counselors and Therapists
  • Psychologists
  • Nurses
  • Physician Residents
  • Students
  • Researchers and Academics
  • Policy Makers and Advocates

All those interested in pain, opioids, addiction, and medical cannabis should find a way to attend. In my opinion, this will be an awesome conference about current topics and issues in Hawaii. It will deal with current and relevant concerns in patient care. You will not be disappointed. The speakers are going to be great. As an advocate for my patients in pain, I felt it was my duty to become a part of the discussion. With aloha and respect, I will enter the "Lion's Den" to defend the medical use of cannabis.
