Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) October 11, 2017
Compassionate Certification Centers® (CCC), a national medical cannabis healthcare network, announced its sponsorship of the 2nd Annual Pennsylvania Health & Wellness Fair, Friday, October, 20, from 1 - 4 p.m., at Union Project, 801 N. Negley Avenue, in Pittsburgh.
Dr. Bryan Doner, a Pittsburgh-based physician and co-founder of CCC, will provide an overview of the endocannabinoid system and an introduction to cannabis treatment options.
The free, educational healthcare event is designed for patients and open to the public. It will bring together state-certified medical marijuana doctors, wellness professionals, industry experts, and community business leaders.
Attendees will receive comprehensive information on the state program and resources on how to apply for a medical marijuana I.D. card. Light refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon.
“This will be an open and inviting event where people can learn about the options available to them. There is a lot of uncertainty and confusion regarding the state program, and we are here to provide answers to all of the question marks,” said Dr. Doner.
The health fair is co-sponsored by Cresco Yeltrah, a Pennsylvania medical marijuana cultivation and dispensary operation.

Carol Black, CEO & President of Carol Black & Associates, created the inaugural Pennsylvania Health and Wellness Fair and is personally tied to cannabis advocacy endeavors. Her sister struggled with narcotic prescriptions before passing away, despite finding relief through cannabis treatments.
“She told me that if she was caught with marijuana, she’d go to jail, but if she was caught with pills at least she’d have a prescription with her name on it,” stated Black. “I teamed up with CCC, because their physician-led cannabis healthcare network helped me to better understand how the cannabis plant works on a scientific and medical scale.”
Black has been helping veterans, minorities, and low-income patients receive retribution from fraudulent cannabis companies and industry scames. She will present alongside other leaders and exhibitors, including: Richard Dimarco of the Pennsylvania Cannabis Association; Diane Briggs of Campaign for Compassion; Christie Billett, a cannabis advocate; HempMeds CBD; and Easy Street Promotions.
The Pennsylvania Health & Wellness Fair expects more than 1,900 attendees and dozens of exhibitors. It will host another event in the spring, alongside Compassionate Certification Centers’ World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo®, April 12-14, 2018, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh.
