Dr. Hoffman to Speak at Cannabis Science Conference
Peninsula Alternative Health is pleased to announce that Clinical Director and Partner Dr. Mary Pat Hoffman, PharmD, will be speaking at the Cannabis Science Conference East in Baltimore, MD on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. The Cannabis Science Conference is one of the largest and most technical cannabis science expos. Dr. Hoffman will present “Same Patients, Same Problems, New Options, New Outcomes.”
The annual event aims at improving cannabis science and features cannabis industry experts, instrument manufacturers, testing labs, research scientists, medical practitioners, policy makers and interested novices. Dr. Hoffman will share real life patient experiences as they have found their way from traditional to cannabis based medicine. In her transition from pharmacist to farmacist, she has witnessed, and will share, astonishing patient progressions as they overcame obstacles, faced challenges by traditional practitioners and eventually found a quality of life not possible before cannabis. Stressing the importance of product selection, regimen and dosing, medical dispensaries have become a place of healing, wellness and comfort for patients. By providing a supportive atmosphere and encouraging open discussion, patients are achieving life changing results and overall improvements in physical and mental health.
“I am honored to present alongside the industry's most respected professionals at such a prestigious medical cannabis event,” Dr. Hoffman said. “Our industry is doing incredible work and it's time to recognize the positive influence we've had in the lives of so many. Events like this bring us all one step closer to breaking the stigma. We are incredibly fortunate to have Josh Crossney and his team bringing this event to Baltimore, the heart of the East Coast industry.”
