Coderix Communicates – Lectures and Public Presentations

At Coderix, we believe that our most crucial responsibility is to deliver high quality, compassionate care to our patients every day in our clinic. We also believe that it is important that we educate our colleagues about issues around substance use, and advocate in public for excellent addictions medicine care. These are some of our lectures and presentations.
