Join us July 13 – 15th, 2020 for the first official ICUDDR conference online! We are excited to bring experts from around the world to your screen. Because we know many of you are struggling with moving instruction online and making other adjustments to ensure physical distancing, we have also decided to adjust our agenda to provide support for your immediate needs. You will find presentations on technologies and tips for engaging students, how to teach skills in an online format, and how to rise about the noise of COVID-19 to continue your academic program development in Addiction Studies among others. We hope you will be part of this important - and historic – event. Go to our Conference Page for more information and to register.
