Addiction Medicine and Pain Management for Primary Care

Sep 24, 2021 – Sep 26, 2021

Nashville - Omni Nashville Hotel

Nashville has been called a “little big city,” and for good reason. While it’s proud of the world-famous music scene that puts them on the map—and continues to draw music superstars from all over the world every day of the year—they’re also happy to retain the small-town feel that gives this city its unique charm. It is no exaggeration to say that a variety of experiences await you in Nashville. Quite simply, there’s something for everyone. Located on Fifth Avenue between Demonbreun and Korean Veterans Boulevard, Omni Nashville Hotel’s design is a modern expression of the city’s distinct character, incorporating natural materials, exposed steel, and regional limestone. The multi-story hotel and expanded museum share entertainment space and bring additional restaurants and retail venues to this dynamic destination in downtown Nashville.
