If you haven't been keeping up with us on Facebook or Instagram, Dr. Chanda has been busy fighting for patients rights, educating lawmakers, and influencing cannabis policy all across the nation the past few weeks. The National Holistic team is so proud to be led by such a dedicated, intelligent, patient-focused woman! Check out a few photos from her travels this month.

Just this past week, Dr. Chanda was in New Orleans for the MJBizConNEXT and Hemp Industry Daily Conference. She also spoke with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry about the Louisiana Medical Cannabis Program that will be spearheaded through her partnership with Southern University.

In her role as CEO and Chairwoman of the Board for Women Grow, Dr. Chanda brought over 700 female entrepreneurs and industry professionals to D.C. for the 2019 Women Grow Leadership Summit. Women Grow is an inspiring, supportive organization helping women and minorities build their careers in the cannabis and hemp industries. It was the first time this event was held on the east coast and it was a huge success! With a wide range of industry experts and speakers, topics were discussed such as Business Planning, Cannabis Marketing, and Tech in Cannabis.

Dr. Chanda also participated with the Philadelphia Chapter of Women Grow as they held a conference discussing Faith in Cannabis: Religion, Science, and Justice in PA's Medical Marijuana Program. In this event, multi-denominational religious leaders and cannabis industry experts came together to discuss all angles of the cannabis question. This historic event was held at the Congregation Rodeph Shalom Synagogue in Philadelphia.

It's been a busy summer for Dr. Chanda and you just never know where you'll see her next. Despite her busy schedule, she continues to be a voice for her patients and share her wealth of knowledge to communities across the U.S!
