At the end of September, Acutis CEO Jibreel Sarij and Chief Scientist and Laboratory Director, Marjorie Bon Homme, PhD, DABCC along with members of our sales team, participated in the Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Providers of New York State (ASAP) Annual Conference in Niagara Falls, New York.
Acutis attended this year’s conference as a 2019 Platinum Sponsor. We made this commitment because the event’s theme, Innovative Integration: Efficiency, Efficacy and Outcomes, speaks directly to the work we do, and how we do it.
We also wanted to make our own original contribution and toward that end, our Dr. Bon Homme gave a well-attended breakout session, Flying under the radar: What are you missing? In her talk she shared her groundbreaking work, designed to help physicians and other health professionals identify a new generation of illicit substances.
These are difficult times as much for the healthcare professions as our communities, and as a Platinum Sponsor, we acknowledged the important work of ASAP, and that of its members, partners, and all those who attended this conference.
For our part, Acutis Sales Representatives were fully engaged. Amanda Leamer worked to expand the company’s network of substance-use facilities and providers. Emily Talarico participated in the generous give and take, finding participants eager to share their knowledge and acquire new insights. Jared Blais put Acutis in front of key influencers in the field.
Acutis CEO Jibreel Sarij made clear not only the importance of the conference, but how Acutis will take the lessons learned and knowledge acquired forward. “We learned firsthand what is most troubling to professionals who treat mental health and addiction. We also gained a better understanding of issues ranging from successes with medication-assisted treatment, to the importance of treating the co-occurring conditions related to mental health and addiction.”
By any metric, the 2019 conference was a success and Acutis is proud to have been a part of it.
