This year's theme, Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Outcomes, Treatment and Reform in Latino Communities, will explore:

 

  • Public health concerns with untreated behavioral health and substance abuse problems within the Latino Community
  • Issues with increases in ineffective and costly emergency room visit by substance abusers with untreated behavioral health problems
  • Strategies for earlier detection of behavioral health issues within the population
  • Recognize the actual prevalence of behavioral health issues among substance abusers
  • The importance of involving primary care physicians in behavioral health screening

 

The Healthcare Lecture is one of ALPFA Boston Chapter's boutique events, which has continually brought healthcare professionals together to learn about relevant topics in the industry.  The lecture features a subject matter expert who can discuss current topics  in a lecture-style setting with a networking reception culminating the evening.
