Please make sure to join us for our 2017 Annual Meeting on Sunday, April 9th at the UCSF Alliance Health Project, 1930 Market St. in San Francisco (Market & Guerrero, close to the Church St. MUNI Station). 

The meeting will consist of two parts.  Our member mixer and business meeting, from 10:00am-1:00pm (including lunch), followed by a CE program from 1:00-3:00pm ("Incorporating Harm Reduction Interventions Into Private Practice").  Note that CEUs are now available for masters- and doctorate-level practitioners via our APA accreditation.

At our Annual Meeting, we discuss our financial and organizational status, review the past year and look toward Gaylesta's future, and elect our new Board. This is also a great opportunity to meet and mingle with colleagues while being able to share your thoughts about Gaylesta's future. 

The training will focus on the principles of Harm Reduction, how to work from a Harm Reduction perspective, and counter-transference issues that may emerge. For more information on this training, go here.
