The medical marijuana event is the first to focus on expanding healthcare dialogue between doctors and more than half a million potential patients.
Pittsburgh, PA – Compassionate Certification Centers is proud to announce the World Medical Marijuana Business Conference & Expo will be held, April 21 – 22, 2017, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The WMMBCExpo is the first conference to offer Continued Medical Education (CME) courses for physicians and providers interested in medical marijuana solutions.
“This is the first time in U.S. history a medical marijuana convention is offering a 12-credit CME cannabis education course for physicians, whether they are for or against marijuana,” – Melonie Kotchey, chief operating officer and co-founder of Compassionate Certification Centers
The conference provides essential educational resources and services healthcare professionals need to implement medical marijuana into their practice. The CME course will offer providers an opportunity to earn 22.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits (including Risk Management Hours). The credits will be provided in conjunction with The Answer Page.
“It is imperative that all physicians and providers have a baseline understanding of medical marijuana,” – Dr. Bryan Doner, DO, CEO, medical director and co-founder of Compassionate Certification Centers

Compassionate Certification Centers chose to debut the WMMBCExpo in Pittsburgh in the wake of Pennsylvania’s historic legislation. Considered the “tipping point” state, now more than 51% of the U.S. population has access to some form of cannabis.
With nine states set to vote on medical marijuana legislation in November, the interest and need for transitional resources is increasing at an exponential rate.
“The WMMBCExpo aims to fill this void and offer clinical providers, patients, business owners and entrepreneurs with the information they will need to move forward and navigate the waters of medical marijuana.”
Cannabis patients and physicians in Pennsylvania and surrounding states will have access to multiple resources at the World Medical Marijuana Business Conference & Expo including educational seminars for patients and healthcare providers, panel discussions including “Cannabis Addresses the National’s #1 Health Epidemic: Prescription Opioid Addiction,” business resources including venture capitalists and investment opportunities and more.
Nearly 300 cannabis-related companies and non-profit organizations are expected to exhibit at the Expo.
