The College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) 79th Annual Scientific Meeting was held this June in Montréal, Canada. Eleven representatives from the Department of Epidemiology attended the meeting, including PhD students Amy Elliott, Verlin Joseph, Shivani Khan, Yiyang Liu, Sadaf Milani, Vicki Osborne, and Mirsada Serdarevic; post-doctoral T32 trainees Dr. Micah Johnson and Dr. Henry Young; and faculty members Dr. Linda Cottler and Dr. Catherine Striley. The group presented a total of four oral presentations and ten posters, covering such diverse topics as prescription misuse, opioid epidemiology, marijuana and cannabinoids, polydrug use, and criminal justice. Dr. Cottler was also honored for completing her three-year term as Treasurer of CPDD. We are extremely proud of our faculty, students, and trainees and the research they presented at this elite conference. Congratulations to all!
