Amazing Location, Quality Programming

Hosted at the Downtown Hyatt Regency Atlanta, less than 6 blocks away from Olympic Centennial Park, the World of Coca-Cola, and the Georgia Aquarium, AAPP 2023 kicks off midday Sunday, April 16!

With the pre-meeting in March, AAPP 2023 will kick off on Sunday afternoon with three amazing sessions, including an opportunity for members to share their mental health story in a session called “Stories Among Us.” Sunday’s schedule also features a student education track and award platform presentations followed by the AAPP Forum On Our Future, the Saklad Award Presentation, and the welcome reception honoring outgoing AAPP President, Cindy Gutierrez.

The next two and a half days are filled with even more high quality programming from leading experts on topics from Understanding the Unique Mental Health Needs of the Refugee Population to Affirming Care for Transgender Patients to Management of Psychiatric Emergencies to Buprenorphine Initiation Strategies. Recertification sessions (aka the Clinical Application Series) will continue to be offered Sunday and Monday during the meeting. See the full schedule* online.

*Schedule is subject to change.

Opportunities to Engage and Network

Sprinkled throughout AAPP 2023 will be opportunities to participate in a number of grant-supported symposia and product theaters to learn about the newest drugs and devices. Additionally, two poster sessions will feature the exciting research being conducted across the nation, while Idea Exchanges presented by AAPP Communities provide an additional opportunity for peer-to-peer discussion, networking, and dialogue on current topics. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to reconnect with peers and colleagues from near and far in Atlanta.
