Harcourt on True Leaf

Former Premier of British Columbia Mike Harcourt will be a featured speaker at the BC Pharmacy Association’s Annual Conference tomorrow.

Harcourt is now the Chair of Vernon based True Leaf Medicine International. 

Harcourt is expected to share his personal experience with chronic pain following a serious spinal cord injury while presenting a new "Patient-First Model for Medicinal Cannabis Therapy" vision for True Leaf.

"He will speak to his vision that pharmacists and naturopaths are complementary elements in a healing chain," stated True Leaf in a press release.

In 2002, Harcourt slipped off his summer cottage deck and fell 20 feet down a steep embankment, suffering a number of injuries. 

At the time, it wasn’t expected Harcourt would walk again, let alone participate in everyday activities.   

Harcourt will be joined by other experts, including Dr. Julio Montaner, Director, BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and André Picard, National Health Writer, The Globe and Mail. 
  
This year’s conference will take place from May 24-26, 2018, at the Fairmont Empress Hotel Victoria. It will mark the BC Pharmacy Association's 50th anniversary and celebrate the many faces of pharmacy. The program includes workshops, presentations and panel discussions from leading Canadian experts on opioid agonist therapy, cannabis, and other hot topics.
