Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) Partners with Healthway Education Systems to Offer CME Accredited Program for Healthcare Professionals

Educating medical practitioners about the cannabis plant’s potent treatment for a wide variety of medical conditions will be an all-day workshop offered at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) at the Javits Center in New York.   Presented by Healthway Education Systems, Comprehensive Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoid Training will take place on Wednesday, June 14th and is a CME accredited program.   The 4th Annual CWCBExpo, June 14-16, is the leading East Coast event for the medical marijuana, legalized cannabis and hemp industries.

The Comprehensive Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoid Training workshop will educate medical practitioners, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and pharmacists as well as industry professionals, on the advanced basic and clinical science of cannabinoids and medical cannabis.

The curriculum at CWCBExpo NY includes:

  • Overview of the endocannabinoid system, synthetic cannabinoid and cannabis plant based preparations in management of neurological disorders, pain, and nausea
  • Comparison of cannabinoid therapies with opioids
  • Practical information on the existing legal medical cannabis products in the US and addiction and ethics of recommending medical cannabis

“This year, New York State added chronic pain as a qualifying condition and gave Physician’s Assistants and Nurse Practitioners authorization to write medical cannabis recommendations. CWCBExpo NY is the optimal location to provide healthcare professionals with the most advanced education and information on the cannabis plant.  We look forward to educating the medical community and improving patient access to this treatment option,” said Scott Giannotti, Managing Director, CWCBExpo.

Michelle Lilly-Hester, Education Officer, added, “Healthway Education bridges the knowledge gap between state medical marijuana programs and medical professionals.  We look forward to offering CWCBExpo NY attendees a world-class curriculum led by world class educators.”

CWCBExpo NY will also present a conference program (June 15-16) made up of curated panel presentations, lectures, and interactive discussions, covering the five main sectors of the cannabis industry: Cultivation, Processing, Sales, Ancillary Businesses, and Advocacy and Legislation. The CWCBExpo NY conference program will also offer headlining Keynote speakers and thought-leadership panels.  Additional add-on workshops (June 14) include Make America Hemp Again; Following the Money in Cannabis: Where and How to Invest in the Cannabis Industry and Raise Capital for Your Cannabis Business; Open a Cannabis Business; and a bonus workshop on June 17th with 2 sessions on The Art of the Cannabis Sommelier: Interpening.
