A sampling of other speakers include Mark Gilbertson, Ph.D, Manchester VA Medical Center; Martha Robb, Ph.D, Dartmouth School of Medicine; and SMHC’s John Miller, M.D. The 15th Erik Cogswell Memorial Conference will take place on Thursday, October 23 at the Harbor Events & Conference Center in Portsmouth.
