LONG ISLAND, N.Y., June 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In an effort to educate doctors on the topic of medical cannabis, the International Cannabis Association (ICA) will be holding a business professional exposition at the Javits Center located in New York from June 17th – June 19th. MarijuanaDoctors.com, a subsidiary to The Medical Cannabis Network (MCN) in alliance with ICA will be presenting a 6-hour introductory Pre-CME course at the conference about medical cannabis and how it applies to New York medical professionals on June 17th, 2015.
This course will be for doctors, physician assistants, nurses, social workers and medical students. The course will cover everything from compliance guidelines for physicians, to the science behind cannabis as a medicine. The course will be presented by John Nicolazzo, Co-Owner of MCN and was created to meet all the requirements outlined by the State of New York.
John Nicolazzo stated in an earlier interview, “This is the conference every doctor in New York has been waiting for. I know from previous work experience in operating 12 doctor clinics in California that this new industry is very lucrative for physicians and beneficial to patients. Within the first year the doctors’ offices were grossing over 400K a month because the demand for a doctor that was willing to write a medical cannabis recommendation was so high. I imagine New York will be twice the market and this time around, we are educating and training the doctors every step of the way.”
