Budapest, Hungary, September 18-24, 2011

Syracuse University’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics’ Addiction Studies program and SU Europe are partnering with the Council of Europe’s Pompidou Group to create a new transatlantic executive education program focused on implementing effective drug policy and governance.

As the global scope of drug trafficking grows at an alarming rate, collaboration among U.S. and European drug policy experts is essential to develop consistency in relative policies.

The program seeks to link policy, research and science with transatlantic dimensions in developing more coherent drug policies. By sharing insights on emerging trends and research about drug use, drug policies, and treatment programs occurring in the U.S. and Europe, participants will share and learn the latest policies geared toward preventing, treating, and reducing the use of addictive substances.

The summit will take place September 18-24 in Budapest, Hungary for public health and drug policy professionals, researchers, addictions treatment providers and practitioners. Graduate students interested in health policy and cutting-edge addiction prevention and treatment can also register and receive academic credit toward their studies.

Participants are eligible for 40 contact hours of continuing education (CEUs) under the addictions and prevention specialist categories to be awarded by Syracuse University. CECHs will be offered for Certified Health Education Specialists. For an additional fee, participants may also choose to register for three graduate course credits through Syracuse University.
