United In Compassion is calling for pledges of support for its planned Medicinal Cannabis Symposium to be held on the Sunshine Coast in August 2021.

Symposium organiser and United in Compassion founder Lucy Haslam said: “We are asking our industry partners to pledge support so that planning can begin in earnest. We are aware that if Covid 19 prevails and we experience another wave, a face-to-face symposium could be in jeopardy and would need to be postponed again or evolve into a virtual event.

“This means that pledges are important. There is a necessary long lead-up time to prepare an event of this size. If the symposium eventuates, those pledges will need to be fulfilled. If the symposium is cancelled, those pledges will not result in loss for you or your organisation.”

Haslam added that, as United in Compassion is a registered charity, all pledges are fully tax-deductible.

The symposium will include a full-day conference for nurses, three-day trade exhibition, networking welcome event, two-day general symposium, gala dinner event and an exclusive event for medical practitioners and health professionals hosted by the Society of Cannabis Clinicians Australian Chapter.

To pledge support for the symposium, or for more information, contact Lucy Haslam.
