Compassionate Certification Centers, a medical cannabis healthcare network, recently announced its strategic partnership with Affinity Bio Partners, a Clinical Research Organization (CRO).

Together, the Pennsylvania-based companies will implement medical cannabis, hemp, and cannabinoid (CBD) clinical studies.

“We are very excited for this opportunity to combine the resources of Compassionate Certification Centers and Affinity Bio Partners in order to further expand medical cannabis research. Partnerships such as these will provide the platform to increased research, better patient care, and integration of medical cannabis into our healthcare system, stated Dr. Bryan Doner, Compassionate Certification Centers co-founder and Chief Medical Officer.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Compassionate Certification Centers has seven medical cannabis offices throughout western Pennsylvania. The progressive health network provides evaluations and continued treatment services for patients.

The company currently has over a dozen certified physicians with backgrounds in pain management, oncology, neurology, pediatrics, gastroenterology, immunology, primary care, rehabilitation, emergency medicine, and other specialties.

“Compassionate Certification Centers’ focus on research and vision for a more inclusive healthcare system aligns with our own,” stated Christina DiArcangelo Puller, CEO, Affinity Bio Partners. “Together, we will help meet patient needs and pioneer clinical research in lieu of medical cannabis, CBD, and hemp studies. Our work will aid in the validity of the cannabis plant as an alternative therapeutic treatment.”
