“This year’s symposium offers outstanding learning opportunities led by local, national and international experts on some of the most pressing health and medical issues of our time,” said BWC Administrator/CEO Stephanie McCloud.

The speaker lineup includes pharmacist Chris Hart, who will share his journey of chemical dependency to recovery, including relapse. On Saturday, Hart provides an open question-and-answer session giving attendees an opportunity to Ask an Addict. Robert Stutman, one of America’s highest profile Drug Enforcement Agency special agents and formerly “the most famous narc in America” (New York magazine), tells how our current drug epidemic differs from previous generations.

The symposium also features speakers on medical marijuana, traumatic brain injuries, patient collaboration, chiropractic care and more.
