asaeppic

Salveo’s Alex Thiersch will be speaking as part of the Know Your Rights panel at the Illinois Medical Cannabis Patient Summit on June 6 at the University Center in Chicago. He will spotlight the civil protections afforded to patients and caregivers enrolled in the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program.

Alex has been involved in the Illinois cannabis space since the bill for the Pilot Program was being debated in the state legislature, and is part of the ownership group of Salveo Health & Wellness. These facts, along with his experience as a lawyer representing medical professionals in matters relating to legal compliance make him well-suited to weigh in on matters of cannabis law in Illinois.

The Illinois Medical Cannabis Patient Summit is sponsored by the Illinois chapter of Americans for Safe Access and the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago. The mission of the day-long event is to provide education about the use of medical cannabis, and the specifics of becoming a registered patient or caregiver in Illinois. There will be an additional presentation in the evening geared towards helping veterans navigate the VHA system to treat illnesses using medical cannabis.

Keynote speakers include Dr. Srishti Nangia and Dr. Suzanne Sisley. Dr. Nangia is a Pediatric Epileptologist at Ann & Robert H Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and an Assistant Professor in Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Sisley is a specialist in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry and the Principal Investigator in a current FDA clinical study looking at the use of whole-plant cannabis in combat veterans with treatment-resistant PTSD.
