MAXhealth Oaks, a member of the greater MAXhealth primary and specialty care network, announced that it will host a free “Lunch and Learn” event outlining how qualified Florida residents may now consider utilizing medicinal cannabis for their healthcare needs. This free event will be held 12:00pm – 1:00pm on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at the MAXhealth Oaks office located at 8620 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34238.
“This informational event is a natural extension of the patient-centered philosophy we have at our clinic,” said Nicholas Angelastro, D.O., lead physician, MAXhealth Oaks. “There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding not only the legality of medicinal cannabis in Florida, but also how it may be used safely within a well-supervised routine of medical care. By presenting the facts of the current regulatory environment, as well the clinical results of low-THC medicines, and then fielding questions from our guests, we hope to begin the process of demystifying medicinal cannabis and enabling our patients to explore every legal option for treating their health conditions.”
With the passage of Florida Amendment 2 in November, patients who are referred by state-designated physicians may legally use medicinal cannabis as treatment for debilitating conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
“Like any other conversation regarding one’s medical care, the choice to incorporate medicinal cannabis within a treatment regime is one that should be based upon matching well-founded, clinical results with the needs of the individual patient.” said Angelastro. “Our clinic is ready to begin this process with any patient who meets the medical and legal requirements to do so.”
Lunch and drinks will be provided to guests at this event. For more information, please call: (941) 966-4949
