The Department of Human Development and Services at North Carolina A&T State University will hold its 8th Annual Rehabilitation of Racial and Ethnic Minorities with Behavioral Addictions (REMBA) conference. The two-day conference will convene on Thursday – Friday, April 10th and 11th at the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. Dr. Bizzell will serve as the opening speaker on Friday, April 11th from 9 am – 10 am to discuss practices related to treatment of behavioral addiction and trauma.
The conference, entitled Building a Network of Recovery in Communities, will address the growing needs of people of color who have been affected by trauma and addictions – an area of expertise for Dr. Bizzell. The goal is to share data focused on the unique needs of people of color with behavioral and/or process addictions, including alcohol and drug abuse, eating disorders, sexual addictions and criminal offense.
Yearly, approximately 200 attendees participate – including Rehabilitation Counselors, Agency Counselors, Human Service Personnel, Human Resource Professionals, Administrators and Students interested in learning more about the topics at hand.
