On Friday, October 13, the Mississippi Hospital Association (MHA) and Hagwood and Tipton (HAT) Law will collaborate on an upcoming workshop concerning updates, legislation, and policy in the medical cannabis space. Dr. Kirk L. Kinard, D.O., will join us to dive into the realm of medical cannabis for the treatment of chronic illnesses and debilitating pain conditions.
As it stands, the workshop is scheduled to take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., including a lunch break. However, the time may be extended depending on the volume of questions. For those who are unable to attend in person, we will provide a virtual option.
Note: This program has been approved for 1.5 hours of live Continuing Education (CE) for pharmacists specializing in opioid addiction.
