New to HUBweek this year, the Ideas Dome Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA will feature a series of more than four dozen sessions taking place across five days, exploring how we can build a more inclusive and equitable future.


When Science is Not Enough. Despite our scientific understanding of addiction as a chronic disease, public opinion and public policy are still largely based on viewing people with addiction as having a moral failure. This talk will examine those attitudes and delve into why storytelling and personal narrative can do what science cannot.


Speaker:


Michael Botticelli
Executive Director, Grayken Center for Addiction (BMC)


Please note: all Ideas Dome sessions require a free HUBweek General Admission Pass to attend.
