Corinne’s Path to the World of Medical Cannabis
As many great movements often come out of adversity, Corinne’s path to the world of medical cannabis began when her father was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer that quickly metastasized to his brain. Medical cannabis emerged as not only a way to potentially dignify her father’s last days, but in fact resulted in a complete remission of the cancer. That was in 2010, he passed in 2021 of old age, not cancer! As a result, Corinne’s experience served as the catalyst to bring information, education and continued research on medical cannabis and the result is United Patients Group. Her work in the private and non-profit sectors is squarely focused on bringing innovation and progress to the medical cannabis movement while always remembering to hold “the virtual hand” of suffering patients and their families through this ever changing industry.
She will forever be missed…
