What’s on Tap for the 2019 APS Scientific Meeting?

Save the date for the APS Scientific Meeting, April 3–6, 2019, in Milwaukee, WI.

Milwaukee is more than beer and cheese. Come to Milwaukee for the science and stay to experience culture, art, and the Milwaukee RiverWalk—2 miles of restaurants, brew pubs, shops, and nightlife.

Milwaukee is home to one of the top art museums in the country. It’s a city of neighborhoods with historic flare and was named by Women’s Health as one of the “Wellthiest” cities in America because of its award-winning parks and outdoor trails.

The call for presentations will open June 4. In the meantime, check out all the dining, museums, and breweries Milwaukee has to offer.

Message from CO*RE

Find a REMS Education Course

On April 5, 2018, the U.S. Surgeon General issued the first public health advisory in 13 years. In short, he urges Americans to “Be prepared. Get naloxone. Save a life.”

The Collaborative for REMS Education (CO*RE) is an 11-partner collaboration that includes primary care, addiction medicine, and pain and hospice/palliative care specialty perspectives. The CO*RE mission is to promote individual and population health and public safety through timely, evidence-based, outcome-oriented, and interprofessional education related to the comprehensive management of pain, addiction, and their comorbidities.

Through its participation as a CO*RE partner APS is committed to offering education about multi-modal treatment options for primary-care providers on behalf of their patients. Find a course.
