Back in Person and Taking a Bite of the Big Apple

Wrapping up the 2023 Addiction Health Services Research Conference

By Bonnie Tse March 8, 2024
After two years of remote AHSR conferences, attendees gathered in the halls of the Verizon Executive Education Center on Roosevelt Island to present their latest research.
We welcomed Drs. Tanzeem Choudhury, PhD; Laura Kwako, PhD and Carlos Blanco, MD, PhD, MS; and Chinazo Cunningham, MD, MS, to lead plenary sessions on technological advances in digital behavior health, funding for substance use health services research, and improving access to addiction services in NY, respectively.

This award recognizes scholars with early achievements and exceptional promises for future contributions to health services research for substance use conditions.

Colleagues and staff at CHERISH, the Department of Population Health Sciences at Weill Cornell Medicine, the Brandeis Harvard SPIRE Center, and the Northeast and Caribbean Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network (ATTC) are few of the many supporters and volunteers who made AHSR 2023 successful.
