Get involved. Your voice of advocacy is needed. Just ask Kelly Clark, M.D., M.B.A, DFAPA, FASAM, who serves as Medical Director for Behavioral Health at Capital District Physician’s Health Plan (CDPHP). An ASAM member for 10 years, she is President of the Kentucky Society of Addiction Medicine.

“I am passionate about addiction medicine,” she says. “Being involved gives professionals a real opportunity to make a difference for our patients, our practices, and our communities.”

An ASAM Fellow, Dr. Clark is an ex-officio member of the ASAM Board of Directors, and co-chairs the ASAM Finance Committee and the ASAM Legislative Action Committee.  She has also served on ASAM’s Pain and Addiction Committee and its Pharmacological Issues Workgroup.

“We are the voice of evidence-based medicine instead of anecdotal medicine,” she says. “Without ASAM, there would not be enough voices to represent patients or physicians dealing with addiction.”
