Cannabis: Protecting Patients and Reducing Harm
On May 18-20, 2017, Patients Out of Time will hold The Eleventh National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics in beautiful Berkeley, California! The theme for the conference will be “Cannabis: Protecting Patients and Reducing Harm.” #Patients2017
At The Eleventh National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, faculty from around the world and across the US will present on their state-of-the-art scientific and medical research findings and clinical experiences, as well as cutting edge legal strategies and organizing tactics. While intended for health care professionals, this conference will be of great benefit for patients, legal professionals, and the public who wish to educate themselves about this remarkable plant.
Immediately prior to the main conference, on Thursday May 18th, Patients Out of Time will offer continuing education workshops. Over the years our pre-conference workshops have given us the opportunity to partner with other, specialized organizations working on medical cannabis, including Veterans for Medical Cannabis Access. These workshops are suited for people at all levels, from the novice to the most seasoned. This year, we’re pleased to offer workshops in four separate areas of focus, providing training for Physicians & Health Care Providers, Nurses, Attorneys, and Patients.
