BTG Symposium

"The highlight of the day was the interaction with the interns talking about their programs and learning about resources ... The connections with other organizations are too many to name ... I am so impressed with what BTG is doing for the students and for this community."

David SheffAbout Our Guest Speaker

David Sheff is the author of "Beautiful Boy," an award-winning, No. 1 New York Times best seller that recounts his harrowing struggle to help his son overcome a methamphetamine addiction. Following its publication, Sheff met countless people struggling to prevent or survive drug abuse. The encounters led him on a 10-year mission to determine why America is losing its war against drugs and so many of its children in the process. Sheff's search culminated with "Clean," a myth-shattering look at drug use and treatment, based on the latest research in psychology, neuroscience and medicine.

Sheff speaks frequently on the subject of drug use, abuse and prevention at conferences and community groups and at high schools and colleges. His ongoing research and reports on the science of addiction earned him a place on Time magazine's list of the world's most influential people. Sheff is a renowned journalist who has written for The New York Times, Fortune, Rolling Stone and many other publications.

"The Symposium was a great way to end my terrific experience with BTG and meet with the community I affected as a whole. I hope to attend more sessions sponsored by BTG where I can receive the opportunity to reconnect with BTG interns and the larger Philadelphia community."
