CPPPH/CSAM Videoconferences

CPPPH has joined with the California Society of Addiction Medicine to offer 90-minute videoconferences to support the work of the wellbeing committees that address alcohol/drug use and addiction, mental health issues, cognitive functioning, aging, and behavioral issues.

We plan to get together regularly because we know that this work can benefit from learning from one another.


Beginning with the session on May 20, 2021, CPPPH/CSAM videoconferences will be accredited programs with a registration fee. There will be 1.5 hours of CME credit from the American Academy of Family Physicians and 1.50 NAMSS continuing education credits from National Association Medical Staff Services.


Beginning with the session on May 20, 2021, registration fees will be $50 per person.

Requests for refunds will be honored if they are received by email before five days in advance of the program. CPPPH will move the registration to a future program or will make the refund with no cancellation fee.

Thank you for organizing these meetings. It helps to feel that we are united in this common cause rather than working as lone rangers.
