Free day-long Psychedelic Summit at UC Davis Health March 23

National experts will discuss what new treatments may mean for neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases


Microdosing, neuropsychedelia and psilocybin therapy are just a few of the topics that will be discussed at a free day-long seminar and webinar at UC Davis Health in Sacramento on March 23. 

The Psychedelic Summit will bring together national experts to explore what the rapidly evolving field of psychedelics and neurotherapeutics may mean for neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases. These new treatment types may hold promise for anxiety, depression, substance use, obsessive-compulsive and post-traumatic stress disorders, among others. 

David Lubarsky, vice chancellor of Human Health Sciences and CEO of UC Davis Health, will introduce the event. The Psychedelic Summit is hosted by the UC Davis Department for Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, the Institute for Psychedelics and Neurotherapeutics and the Behavioral Health Center of Excellence
