The Healing Clinic is on a mission to educate
"Our goal is to promote awareness through our education services and to increase acceptance and understanding of using cannabis for medicinal purposes."
At our in-house seminars, we educate the Illinois community about the therapeutic and palliative benefits of medical cannabis. We are on the forefront of a movement and industry that is largely misunderstood. We embrace our responsibility to enlighten the public about existing evidence and emerging research which proves cannabis to be a natural, non-toxic and effective treatment option for many different medical conditions and symptoms.
By promoting awareness through our educational services, we hope to eliminate the stigma attached to using marijuana for medicinal purposes.
We invite anyone who is interested in learning about the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot program or about medical marijuana in general. Each seminar will begin with a presentation that focuses on a specific topic, such as; History of Cannabis Prohibition, Benefits of Cannabis for Epilepsy Patients, and Marijuana Policy Reform in the United States. There will be time for Q and A following each presentation and all seminars include an open discussion where attendees have an opportunity to share personal stories and voice concerns. Our goal is to promote awareness through our education services and to increase acceptance and understanding of using cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Recent Praise For THC's Seminars
On behalf of myself and the Wellness House staff and participant community, I cannot express enough how grateful and appreciative we all are of each of you, along with Dr. Spero and Dr. Mike, for your willingness to share your time and expertise with all of us last evening. In addition to a very informative and easy to follow presentation, I truly appreciate your willingness, patience and time in fielding questions from our very inquisitive and diverse participants, especially as the presentation was winding down.
I have started going through our evaluation forms from the event last evening, and the response from our participants is overwhelmingly positive...Seeing the great turnout from last evening and hearing all of the questions was very exciting for my role in the educational programming at Wellness House, and last night is certainly indicative that there is continued, deep need for knowledge in this particular area. We would love to provide this or related opportunities again for our community here and I will continue to be in discussion with Feliza and The Healing Clinic about those ideas.

On-Site Private Seminars
The Healing Clinic hosts on-site private seminars for physicians, clinical staff, case managers for non-profit foundations and any other organization that works with patients who qualify and could benefit from the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot program. We understand that many physicians will not be able to certify patients to use medical marijuana, and it is our duty to assume that responsibility. We are happy to conveniently present on location for groups who want to learn more about the new pilot program, our services and how we can work together to help suffering patients.
