2015 CPAMM National Summit

Washington, DC

Despite press and media coverage of prescription drug abuse, the misuse, abuse and diversion of ADHD prescription stimulant medication remains a serious issue, especially among college students. That’s why CPAMM held a National Summit in Washington, D.C., featuring insightful presentations from leading researchers, conversations involving college students, and breakout sessions to help prevent misuse, abuse and diversion and take action on the issue. The Executive Summary of the Summit, and studies referenced in research as presented by Amelia Arria and David Rabiner, are available for download below.
