AACT Presymposium on September 24

Toxicologist versus Terrorist: Preparing for Your Worst Call

Jack Bauer, Jack Ryan, Carrie Mathison could have used a well-trained toxicologist by their side. When the next terrorist attack occurs, toxicologists will likely be among the first medical providers contacted. The objective of this presymposium is to provide you with the information required to recognize and manage chemical, biological, and radiological attacks. These high-intensity, 30 minute countdown sessions will be case-based and rapid paced. Chemical weapons will be covered in detail, while the other topics will focus on early identification. Supporting materials will cover standard and alternative treatments, with relevant stockpile and resource availability detailed. Toxicologic implications of current and potential biological weapons will also be covered. Finally, we must prepare for appropriate risk communication to minimize mass hysteria. The fascinating day will culminate in a doomsday discussion focusing on the greatest threats.

Keynote Speaker

Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption


William C. Moyers has spent his career helping people who are just like him.  People who struggle to overcome the deadly grip of addiction to dangerous substances.  He uses his own life’s experiences to highlight the power of addiction and the promise and possibility of recovery from it.  As a national advocate for the renowned Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, Moyers carries the message of hope, help and healing to audiences everywhere and has appeared on Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America and National Public Radio.  His memoir has been a New York Times best-seller.  Now he shares his story with us, but does so in the context of the opioid epidemic that has affected everyone.  Moyers offers his insights in how best to help somebody access treatment, what to look for in considering treatment options and what it really means to recover from this chronic illness.
