    As part of National Public Health Week , the School of Public Health is proud to host Michael Botticelli, Executive director of the Grayken Center for Addiction Medicine at the Boston Medical Center, and Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy under President Obama for “Changing Public Policy on Addiction When Science and Data Are Not Enough.​” Refreshments will be served.

    One of the nation’s leading addiction experts, Botticelli served as the Director of National Drug Control Policy at the White House under President Obama. He was the first person to hold the position who was also in long-term recovery from a substance use disorder and who came from a public health background.

    Botticelli previously served as Director of the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, working to extend successful models of care across the state and the nation. He has served in a variety of leadership roles for the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors. He was a member of the Advisory Committee for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. He has also co-authored many peer-reviewed articles that have significantly contributed to the field. Born in Upstate New York, Mr. Botticelli holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Siena College and a Master of Education degree from St. Lawrence University.

    The Barnes Lecture is supported by The Dr. and Mrs. Frederick W. Barnes, Jr. Lectureship in Public Health, endowed through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. James S. Zisson ’74, in memory of Norma and Miles Zisson ’38. Dr. Barnes was a beloved member of the faculty who had strong interests in humanism and medicine, and who developed several innovations in teaching at Brown, including the use of authors and actors to read and perform pieces on health-relevant themes. Mrs. Barnes was a social worker who shared her husband’s love of students and teaching.
