Amor Montes de Oca, Executive Director of Illinois Women in Cannabis, stated, “We appreciate being able to plan and host critical discussions like this forthcoming breast cancer awareness event.” “Because IWC was established the same year Illinois legalized medical marijuana, we’ve developed and evolved alongside the state’s cannabis program. Thanks to active members and dedicated support from cannabis companies like nuEra, we’ve been able to grow our educational programs, advocacy efforts, and community collaborations over the last seven years. “Thanks to its members and corporate sponsors, IWC is able to undertake vital work,” Amor said of the forthcoming webinar. 

   The IWC Breast Cancer and Cannabis webinar’s featured panelists include: 

  • Jamila Owens-Todd is a naturopathic doctor and adjunct lecturer and consultant for the Saint Louis University cannabis science department. Owens-Todd has also worked for Phytos Cannabis, a prominent cannabis business based in Missouri, as a research manager. As a scientist, Owens-Todd will rely on her knowledge and experience in product development and analysis, as well as patient counseling as a naturopathic medicine primary care practitioner. 
  • MSN, RN April Hatch is the co-founder of Cannabis Care Team. The registered nurse and her team of nurses offer qualified medical cannabis patients with the individualized and ongoing education, support, and advocacy they need to reap the medicinal advantages of cannabis while still remaining safe. Hatch and her team also offer cannabis education and training to Midwest cannabis businesses, including frontline workers and brand ambassadors, as well as serving as live, in-store instructional resources for medical cannabis patients and retail consumers. 
  • Tammy Azzarello, a nuEra Chicago Patient Consultant, will discuss her insights and experiences as a first point of contact for medical cannabis and adult-use clients that visit nuEra shops. Azzarello advises canna-consumers on consumption techniques, strains, dosage, and product effects as a patient consultant. 
  • Breast cancer sufferers who are also registered medical marijuana users in their respective states are among the IWC’s distinguished guests. Their approach and journey have benefited greatly from the advice of a cannabis doctor. 
  • Jasmine Carracci, MSW, and Gilda’s Club bi-lingual program coordinator, will also speak. Gilda’s Club is a nationwide cancer support group with a particular connection to Chicago, and profits from NuEra’s “Pre-Rolls for a Cause” product and retail campaign, which was just introduced in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, will go to the Chicago branch of Gilda’s Club.
