New York, New York (PRWEB) March 31, 2015
MarijuanaDoctors.com, the nation’s premier service for connecting patients to the medical marijuana industry, will hold an educational forum for Medical Professionals at the 2nd annual 2015 Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition, taking place at New York City’s Jacob Javits convention center on June 17th – June 19th.
The Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo is the nation’s most preeminent conference in the professional cannabis industry. The exposition, now in its second year, is organized by The International Cannabis Association. The ICA has created a platform for individuals and businesses alike to get the necessary support in obtaining resources related to the marijuana industry.
The forum will cover a range of topics, all relevant to the medical marijuana industry, as it pertains to the State of New York, including but not limited to:
- Introduction to Cannabis as Medicine
- Research for Specific Medical Conditions
- Components of Cannabis
- Symptoms and Diagnosis
- The Endocannabinoid System
- Proper Dosage
- Cannabinoid Profiles
- Tolerance, Dependence and Withdrawl
- Drug Interactions
- Side Effects and Adverse Reactions
John Nicolazzo, MarijuanaDoctors.com’s co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, will be one of the featured speakers, as well as the host, and will be leading MarijuanaDoctors.com’s continuing medical education forum on the first day of the convention, June 17th from 11am-3pm.
“It is truly an honor to be presenting this course,” says COO John Nicolazzo. “When New York released the regulations for doctors we were already building our educational curriculum for New York Physicians. Our course is exact to what the state of New York requested with an additional three or four more learning objectives we felt were pertinent for doctors to understand. Our lineup is spectacular; we have several medical professionals presenting a variety of topics, all with amazing credentials.”
Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, and Registered Nurses are invited to attend as well as medical students and doctors in residency. The forum will be an equivalency to a four-hour continuing medical education course which is a requirement by the State of New York for medical professionals as outlined in the state legislature.
The course, created by MarijuanaDoctors.com, is a pre-CME course and if approved by the State of New York, will be the state’s approved instruction for medical professionals.
Guests are encouraged to register early for enrollment as seating for the course is limited.
