Opening Presentation - Overcoming the Stigma of Addiction
Presenter - Christopher Kennedy Lawford

At a young age, Christopher Kennedy Lawford became addicted to drugs and alcohol, the latter of which has been a genetic “curse” in his family for generations. Sober for almost 30 years now, he continues to campaign tirelessly in both the public and private sectors for the recovery community. He currently works with the United Nations, White House Office on Drug Control Policy, and World Health Organization.

Lawford holds a BA from Tufts University, a JD from Boston College Law School, and Masters Certification in Clinical Psychology from Harvard Medical School, where he held an academic appointment as a lecturer in psychology. He is the author of three New York Times best-selling books related to his personal experience with addiction and recovery.

At the Summit, as he does when he travels around the world for speaking engagements, Lawford will discuss addiction and mental health issues as well as how to overcome the stigma associated with both.
