Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with Alisha Benner, MD. In recent years, the public and lawmakers have recognized the benefits of using marijuana as part of a treatment plan for patients with difficult diseases to manage. For example, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy find that medical marijuana diminishes nausea and can stimulate appetite. This presentation provides an overview of the complex history of medical marijuana and the current applications of its use. RN and Allied Health lectures offer CNE and ASRT continuing education credit (upon approval) for eligible participants. We invite anyone interested to view our lectures. Lectures are viewable online via Zoom Webinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites. Please contact us for more information about Zoom Webinar registration or to be connected with a site coordinator near you.
