“Fay Zenoff’s talk … was a highlight of our CSAM 2019 conference. She shed light on the oft-ignored but powerful role stigma plays in our work. Her wealth of experience, humor, and humanism were deeply appreciated by our audience.”

Fay’s talk fundamentally changed my attitude about disclosure for myself and those in the helping profession, and big changes are underway, because Silence = Death. Thank you!” – David Simmons, MD, 2019 CSAM attendee

“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. This was the most meaningful part of the conference, and has validated what I’ve always known: stigma kills.”
– 2019 CSAM attendee

“I’m in recovery and this talk motivated me to think about self disclosure to my colleagues in case it might help some of them feel comfortable asking for help.”
– 2019 CSAM attendee

Very inspirational talk in removing stigma amongst colleagues.”
– 2019 CSAM attendee

“We can’t help our patients until we as physicians can see ourselves as worthy of wellness and acceptance of our own flaws.”
– 2019 CSAM attendee

Fay is one of the best presenters I have ever experienced. She delivered an amazing program on how to not just survive but thrive in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. She has an incredible mastery of the subject matter as well as outstanding delivery. Her content was engaging, relevant, and filled with practical and relevant content. I have received countless praise and requests for Fay to come back for more!”
