Meet our 2023-24 ACAAM/AOD Health Rich Saitz Editorial Intern!

Brigid Adviento is a current addiction medicine fellow at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. She is originally from San Bernardino, California. She attended medical school at Tulane University School of Medicine and graduated in June 2023 from a combined residency in internal medicine and psychiatry at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. She was interested in pursuing addiction medicine fellowship training for the opportunity to deepen and broaden her experience of evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders and to have time to stay up to date in the latest research in this new and growing field. She is excited to be a part of the ACAAM/AOD Health Rich Saitz Editorial Internship for the chance to do just that with the rest of the AOD Health editorial team.
