More than sixty people attended the symposium. We explored the possible practical uses of cannabis as well as the dangers. The feeling all around was that it was a valuable public service. Many people in the audience were cancer or chronic pain patients. I was glad they could hear this. Included below are remarks from the librarian instrumental in helping us put this together. Thank you, Ruth Shafer.
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.
The program was great. I had zero negative feedback.
I would say that all the speakers were well prepared and knew their topic. Usually when there is a panel of four, we have one panelist who standouts as better or worse than the rest, but not in this case.
I think the balance of the doctors to patient was very good, but his presentation was essential for closing the circle.
I wish I had some criticisms to share, but honestly, it was very well done.
As for future programs, let me know what you are thinking about and I will see if it fits with the "bigger picture" of programs.
thanks for all you work, it paid off.
ps I am also glad I was there, and also glad there were no real issues for me deal with....
