DC Week

It's been a long week that has finally come to and end here in DC. I arrived on Monday and the conference I attended and presented at ended today. We all fly home tomorrow. We had a King County meeting this morning and there were 24 of is present! King County was well represented. This is a good thing in that it means that we are continually working to improve the quality of the work we do in King County. The conference was three days and I presented on each day in different presentations - one was one the importance of partnership between the justice system and treatment, another on the implementation of evidenced based practices across systems of care with my colleagues from Denver and finally the prevalence of Opioid addiction among youth and young adults with my colleagues from Ohio.

The conference was held at the Washington Hilton which we learned is locally called the Hinkley Hilton as it is the site where John Hinkley attempted to assassinate Regan.

I actually stayed at the Kimpton in Dupont Circle as opposed to the conference hotel. I love the Kimpton's!

It looks like I was there for a month based on my closet but it was truly only a week!

So I really did not have a lot of time for touristing around other than the three runs I was able to get in while here.

Mind you when it looks like I had a ton of time to tourist around these pictures were actually taken in either the evening on a fun or in the very early morning before the conference.

Headed home tomorrow! Will be glad to be home to see my husband and the pups!

Later -
