Speakers: 

Dr. Jennifer Anderson is a family physician who specializes in helping pediatric patients who have failed everything explore cannabinoid therapy. She started this practice four years ago after her son with cerebral palsy and intractable epilepsy turned around dramatically on CBD after failing all options. In 2016, she found it impossible to navigate and secure her son’s right to access CBD within the current medical framework and stigma surrounding cannabis. After risking everything including her license to help her son, she now works to advocate and educate and share her story to help decrease the stigma around cannabinoid use in the pediatric space. In addition, she works as a preceptor for medical trainees and continue to work in hospital and ER.
