This event was the one that really set our standards and typical lineup, consisting of three main presentations, a patient testimonial panel and doctor introduction, and a comprehensive Q&A session at the end of each session! Interspersed are short introductions to each dispensary, to give patients an idea of what they can expect at each.

The Staybridge Inn in St. Petersburg gave us a beautiful space to work with. This is an hour before session 1, with attendees already filtering in to speak with doctors and dispensaries!

Acupuncture and Herbal Therapies

Acupuncture and Herbal Therapies was a local sponsor who we were very lucky to have join us at MMAD in St. Petersburg. The physician pictured, Robert Linde AP RH, shares a building with another of our sponsors, MMTClinics of Florida, to form a partnership grounded in patient support and the pursuit of wellness.

Dr. Dorn making rounds

As the conference came to a close and attendees took to a more informal discussion with presenters, Dr. Dorn made rounds through the audience to sit with patients and follow up on subjects from the Q&A more thoroughly.
