Public Education Events
Knowledge is power
Education empowers ‘self-care’. The World Health Organization defines self-care as ‘the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, and maintain health and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a health-care provider’ (WHO 2014).The Global Health Initiative provides educational events focused on medicinal cannabis for the public, so that they may make informed decisions about their health and empower them to work with their healthcare professional to find solutions to their health issues. The Global Health Initiative also works with professional groups and other not-for-profit organisations to provide evidence-based information and contribute to their public and professional educational programs.
