Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (“Khiron” or the “Company”) (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF) (Frankfurt: A2JMZC), a vertically integrated cannabis leader with core operations in Latin America and Europe, today announces the Company has introduced Latin America’s first internationally accredited post graduate medical cannabis program. Hosted in partnership with Mexico’s TecSalud School of Medicine and Health Sciences, this first of its kind program provides essential medical cannabis education to practicing doctors and comes as Khiron plans to roll out its satellite clinic and market awareness strategy in Mexico.
“Our goal is to improve the lives of 1 million patients by 2024, and Mexico is a very important part of that plan. The success of our partnership with Tecnologico de Monterrey allows us to now introduce the first internationally recognized medical cannabis diploma program in Latin America. We are very enthusiastic about our role in the legal medical cannabis market in Mexico and believe that an educated physician community, together with our proven, vertically integrated model, will give us a significant first mover and sustainable advantage in the country,” comments Alvaro Torres, Khiron CEO and director.
The medical diploma will be delivered virtually through the TecSalud School of Medicine and Health Sciences, starting in February 2021, to provide physicians with the necessary tools for the responsible use and safe prescription of cannabinoids. The program will cover the theoretical and practical basis of medical cannabis, pharmacological properties of cannabinoids, and the international regulatory frameworks for medical cannabis. The diploma course will be delivered through keynotes, expert panels and workshops with international speakers and pioneers in the field of medicinal cannabis. Dr. Fernando Cantú, the Academic Director of the Medical Specialty of Anesthesiology and Clinical Director of the Clinic of Pain and Palliative Care at TecSalud will oversee the program.
