          Debbie Churgai, just watched the ask the Expert webinar on youtube. Dr. Leah Sera was excellent on the topic of cannabis and I learned a lot. Not sure how it related to melanoma, as she could not answer any questions on the topic of melanoma as she is not an oncologist. Kind of missed a great chance to have someone with her who could have continue the conversation. It would have been nice to cover actual research on effects of cannabis for patients using immunotherapy, as that is what most people would have been wanting to hear about.

              Hi Ed, we were actually supposed to have an oncologist join us for the webinar, but they ended up not being able to make it last minute. I agree with you that it would have been very beneficial to the conversation. Hopefully we can create another webinar on the topic with her included.
