The RDAR Center at the University of Nebraska invites you to our first annual Rural Drug Addiction Research and Translation Symposium.
The mission of the Symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners from across the United States to address drug addiction and rural drug use. We seek to advance discussions about how research and translation can contribute to understanding addiction in rural and midwestern communities.
