Open Talks Health Conference

Open Talks Health Conference is a component of our community health education initiative to provide year-round comprehensive health care training for clinicians, patients and consumers. Held annually in the fall, the conference will provide CE approved sessions for nurses, social workers, counselors, students and other health care professionals on various disease states affecting the residents of Baton Rouge.

2018 Theme:  Substance Use Disorder

 The conference goal this year is three-fold:

  1. Provide awareness and educate in the opioid epidemic and other substances.
  2. Provide attendees with the current screening, prevention, treatment and referral across the healthcare continuum for substance use disorder.
  3. Discuss upcoming advocacy in Louisiana related to substance use disorder.

We invite nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, counselors, students and health care professionals to attend this one-day event on Friday, October 26, 2018 at Crown Plaza Executive Center in Baton Rouge.

Online registration for Open Talks will be available in August. If you have questions, please contact our Development Director, Lori Lauve at or (225) 424-1772.
