“Excellent workshop! I would highly recommend this to any of my colleagues. I work in a family health team and would love if a similar workshop was targeted to family physicians, as they work directly with patients and yet often express they have a lack of knowledge about cannabis.”
“Very helpful. Dr Walsh is a dynamic speaker -very knowledgeable. Kept my attention the entire day!”
“It was clear that Zach is well informed and also passionate about this subject matter, as well as issues of human rights and social justice, very holistic approach.”
“I enjoyed it and learned a lot. I have already used some of the info during case conferences and in supervision.”
