Robert Hogan, D.O., will present “ Beyond the White Coat: A Physician’s Candid Conversation About Addiction and Recovery” as part of Interprofessional Education Week. Dr. Hogan tells a harrowing story of his personal journey with substance use disorder as a physician. His presentation discusses stigma and how substance use disorder can impact anyone. A student led NARCAN training session will take place via Zoom at 5 p.m. immediately following the presentation.

 

Hogan was born and raised in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. His medical career began in Parkersburg as an emergency medicine physician. Self-medicating and substance use created several professional and legal consequences. Following the completion of his federal prison sentence, he went on to use his firsthand knowledge of substance use disorder and recovery as a therapist at Greenbriar Treatment Center in Pennsylvania. He is the founder and Medical Director of Cheat Lake Aesthetics and Wellness. Hogan is in long term recovery from all mood- and mind-altering substances and has been since the day of his arrest on February 21, 2014. His professional goal is to become fellowship-trained in addiction medicine in order to better treat this underserved and often stigmatized patient population.
