9:30 AM - 12:00 PM The Quiet Corner of the Arabian Peninsula Retired Navy Captain and former Chief of Addiction Medicine at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles, Past President of the North County Chapter and Continuing Education Center, Rancho Bernardo, will discuss "The Quiet Corner of the Arabian Peninsula: Oman and the UAE." The southeast corner of the Arabian Peninsula was figuratively awakened from sleep by the development of petroleum exports in the 1960s and '70s. How different countries have managed this blessing/curse has resulted in interesting, contrasting conditions. This presentation based on the presenter's recent visit to the region and personal research will examine current social, political, and cultural conditions in the region and explore why this area has been spared from the turmoil in much of the rest of the Middle East. Note: There will be a Program Committee meeting shortly after the morning lecture in the conference room.
