OHSAM 2020 Annual Meeting

A hybrid offering of a live virtual gathering and on-demand accredited education


The Ohio Society of Addiction Medicine (OHSAM) is going virtual! As our largest in-person gathering event of the year, it wasn’t an easy decision, but with your input and with so much uncertainty due to COVID-19, we are confident going virtual is the right decision. Your OHSAM board has put together a schedule that highlights best practices and new innovations in addiction medicine, and showcases our quest for excellence in all aspects of our work. The annual meeting will be a combination of accredited on-demand education for you to complete at your convenience, and a live webinar meeting for our legislative updates, business meeting and for us to share, connect and discuss with each other. You’ll get the exceptional education that you’ve come to expect from the OHSAM annual meeting experience, but now get the added benefit of accessing this education from the comfort of your home or office – at no charge for OHSAM members.

Stay safe and well,

Greg Boehm, MD
