Dr. Danovitch's presentation will provide a review of recent findings on marijuana with an emphasis on addressing questions patients frequently ask their physicians about its use, and based on up-to-date science, suggest ways to improve physician-patient discussions about cannabis and apply them to a clinical setting.
