    We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS) on a new webinar series, addressing the use of medications to treat addiction — including opioid use disorder — for adolescents and young adults.

    Dr. Marc Fishman and Dr. Sharon Levy will join Dr. Marc Manseau, Chief Medical Officer of OASAS, and Associate Chief Medical Officers Dr. Grace Hennessy and Dr. Kelly Ramsey to offer a unique opportunity to hear from national experts and answer your questions.
