NAADAC & NBCC Minority Fellowship Program Fellows Attended the 2018 Annual Conference in Houston
The NAADAC & NBCC Minority Fellowship Program Fellows enjoyed their time at the 2018 Annual Conference held in Houston, TX. Conference registration, airfare and lodging was paid for by the Minority Fellowship Program, allowing the Fellows to take advantage of all of the opportunities that the Conference had to offer. 
 Fellows spent time networking with each other, industry professionals, government representatives, and leaders in the addiction field.  Poster presentations, plenary presentations, breakout sessions, and an exhibit hall supplied endless learning and professional development opportunities. 
 Fellows also had the opportunity to ask NAADAC leadership about careers, credentialing, licensing, affiliate connections, and more during a Question & Answer Session.
