The Latest on Opioids and Addiction
Reporting on opioids can take a toll on journalists, too. The National Press Foundation and the American Society of Addiction Medicine are offering an all-expenses-paid opportunity for journalists to pause and take a deep dive into the opioids crisis. Over three days, NPF training will address: the science of addiction; the latest research on treatment; the role of marijuana and alcohol; trends in substance abuse; and more. With this grounding in hand, journalists will then cover the three-day American Society of Addiction Medicine Annual Conference, with full access to presenters and abstracts.
The NPF training is March 31-April 2. The ASAM Annual Conference runs from the evening of April 2-5. Both are in Denver.
The expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs, conference registration fees and most meals. It is open to all U.S.-based journalists. Applicants must commit to attend the NPF training and the ASAM conference. Apply by Feb. 18, 2020
Support for this program comes from Arnold Ventures and it is hosted by ASAM. NPF retains sole responsibility for programming and content.
