About the Presentation

She will focus predominantly on factors health care providers should take into account when considering incorporating medical marijuana into their medical practice, including lack of guidance from licensing agencies on the standard of care.

“The ever-changing New Jersey medical marijuana laws have been one of the more interesting topics in the health care industry, so I look forward to continuing to educate and be educated, especially in comparison to how other states have progressed,” said Ros.
