Our patient education partners at Medical Cannabis Outreach have scheduled another round of educational seminars for the fall.

Their knowledgeable staff has been a great help both to us and to the communities in Fulton, Warren, McDonough, Hancock, and Henderson counties and will be hosting several events in the coming months.

Medical Cannabis Outreach Featured In The News

McDonough Voice Photo Caprice

Our patient education partners Medical Cannabis Outreach were featured recently in the McDonough County Voice! The paper covered the seminar last weekend in Macomb, one of the many free educational seminars that MCO has been hosting. Caprice Price Sweatt, the group’s founder, related that the vast majority of interest that they’ve received has been from people bucking the prevailing stereotypes of cannabis consumers. As the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program has intended, the vast majority of people she’s spoken with are patients with severe and debilitating illnesses.

“We have a lot of MS (multiple sclerosis) patients. A lot of MS patients, a lot of cancer patients,” Sweatt said. “I have a lot of terminal cancer patients that at this point, they haven’t even smoked cannabis before and they’re just going to try it because they have no other alternatives.”

Salveo Health & Wellness owner Scott Miller was also on hand, outlining some of the needs filled by MCO’s work.

“There’s fingerprinting, costs, paperwork,” Miller said. “There’s a lot of hoops to get signed up, and a need for seminars to help people figure the process out.”

Hat’s off the Medical Cannabis Outreach for continuing our mission of serving communities, spreading information, and helping patients. There is a seminar scheduled this Saturday, June 6. If you are interested but can’t make it keep checking back with the group on Facebook as more events are announced.

Alex Thiersch Speaking at Illinois Medical Cannabis Patient Summit

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.
