The Pennsylvania Pain Society Focuses on Pain Management and Medical Marijuana
Solevo Wellness recently attended the 2nd annual meeting of The Pennsylvania Pain Society held in Hershey, PA from December 8 – 10.
The conference was designed to provide a forum for healthcare professionals to discuss evidence-based treatments and techniques in pain management. Medical Marijuana was a major topic at the conference, with 6 hours of breakout sessions dedicated to the subject.
Solevo Wellness was represented by Dr. William Fritz and by Chief Operating Officer Samuel Britz. Dr. Fritz is shown above, along with Dr. Bruce Nicholson, President of the PA Pain Society.
Over half of the 244 medical professionals in attendance visited the Solevo Wellness booth. The Solevo Wellness team was pleased to be able to give out copies of Michael Backes’s book, Cannabis Pharmacy to 120 of the booth visitors.
“It was a privilege to be able to connect with such a dedicated group from the medical community,” said Britz. “It’s clear there is a great deal of interest in cannabis as a treatment for chronic pain.”
These are encouraging signs at a time when the Department of Health has named opioid abuse the most critical health issue facing Pennsylvania.
