The expansion of legal access to medical cannabis requires health care professionals to have up to date, reliable, and scientifically supported education and training. 

Patients Out of Time is pleased to present The Fourteenth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics in a virtual, online format from Thursday May 20th through Saturday, May 22. The theme of the conference is “The State of the Science”, and our goal is to provide attendees with a clear overview of the current status of the known and unknown factors associated with the therapeutic use of cannabis.  This virtual conference is designed for healthcare professionals as well as the general public and will be held online. The conference will be hosted by Mary Lynn Mathre RN, MSN, President of Patients Out of Time, with a special welcome from Dr. Mikhail Kogan of the George Washington University, Center for Integrative Medicine, co-sponsor of this event. 

For 25 years, Patients Out of Time’s accredited clinical conference series has been internationally regarded for providing the best in science based education for medical professionals, caregivers, patients and the public on the subject of cannabis therapeutics, establishing the organization as an authoritative leader in this field.
