Sep. 12, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University students can attend next week's inaugural West Virginia Integrated Behavioral Health Conference, to be held Tuesday through Thursday, Sept. 17-19, at the Charleston Civic Center.

They will receive a discounted rate to attend the meeting, which will include professionals from diverse fields, including physicians, social workers, pharmacists, nurses, law enforcement officers, legal advocates and others. Participants will have the opportunity both to enhance their own skills and learn how to better collaborate with other professionals.

The conference will feature internationally and locally recognized presenters who will examine the state of integrated health care. Among these is Dr. Daniel Carlat, who serves as director of the Prescription Project in Washington, D.C., and is responsible for the oversight of the Pew Charitable Trusts' initiatives on medical conflicts of interest.

Students can register for $35 per day with lunch included. Registration for non-students is $249. For more information on attending this conference, visit http://dhhr.regsvc.com/ibhconf online.
