Topics in Addiction is the monthly gathering of the Addiction Center for Translation to discuss topics related to addiction. Topics are presented in an informal environment in ways that are accessible to the faculty, staff and students of Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State as a whole, of any background. The program hopes to reach not only basic scientists and clinicians, but also everyone who has an interest in addiction and its widespread implications on research, clinical work, medical education, policy and the community.
The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month. Sessions vary in focus and format depending on the speaker.
