May 10, 2017 - (Newswire)

Healthway Education Systems, a nationally and internationally accredited medical cannabis training platform, in joint partnership with Cannabis World Congress and Business (CWCB), will provide Comprehensive Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoid Training during the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition (CWCBExpo).

On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, the training is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, pharmacists, registered nurses, health care professionals and the public involved in the care of patients. Dr. Greg Smith, MD, and Dr. Kevin Smith, MD, will address the distinctions and practicalities of medical cannabis use.

The live, accredited Comprehensive Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoid Training workshop will educate medical practitioners, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and pharmacists as well as industry professionals, on the advanced basic and clinical science of cannabinoids and medical cannabis. This activity is jointly provided by Cannabis World Congress and Business and Healthway Education Systems.

Dr. Greg Smith is Chief Medical Advisor for Michael James Enterprises, Inc. He earned his medical degree from Rush Medical School in Chicago and a Masters of Public Health from Harvard University. He completed residency training in Preventive Medicine at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Since leaving the U.S. Army with the rank of Major, Dr. Smith has practiced in California, Georgia and Florida for the past 25 years. He first trained on use of medical cannabis in California in 2000 and has made medical cannabis and CBD oil part of his practice since that time. An avid writer, Dr. Smith has published two medical textbooks (including the first science-based textbook on medical cannabis, "Medical Cannabis: Basic Science & Clinical Applications"), a novel titled "Malpractice," and articles with many magazines and over a dozen peer-reviewed medical publications. He is active in promoting research on medical cannabis and neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, post-concussion dementia and Huntington's disease.

After completing his medical degree, Dr. Kevin Smith received a Masters of Public Health from Yale University and completed his residency in Occupational and Preventive Medicine at both Yale and the University of Iowa. His 30-plus years’ experience included serving his country in the U.S. Army Reserve Medical Corps, where he reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and was deployed several times as a Field Surgeon and Preventive Medicine Physician. Fluent in Spanish and having lived in many locations worldwide, including the U.K., Sweden, Mexico and the Dominican Republic, Dr. Smith has also been on the teaching faculties of several universities and institutes. His ability to educate a variety of medical personnel including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants alike has garnered wide respect for both technical and practical knowledge. Switching easily between patient one-on-one, lecturing, reviews and consulting, Dr. Smith’s dedicated commitment to being a physician who helps others is evident to all those who meet him.
