Thank you to everyone who participated in CVSA's October Virtual Expert Presentation! Our presenter was Dr. Thangam Venkatesan and she talked to us about Cannabinoids and how they relate to CVS. There was so much valuable information in this presentation; and so many good questions!

You can watch the presentation in its entirety on CVSA's new YouTube channel.
We hope to provide opportunities like these once a month. In November, we will hear from Dr. Robert Issenman. Dr. Issenman's research on the nutritional and digestive patterns of children and youth have led to work on obesity and body image perception in parents, children and physicians. Long term studies in Inflammatory Bowel Disease include studies of growth and bone mineral metabolism, adaptation to chronic disease, use of nutritional and complimentary products, the life interests and activities of young parents including their reliance on educational materials and the internet. In addition, he has published studies on autonomic function in Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. Dr. Issenman has also been a long time CVSA medical advisor.

Watch for tickets to become available soon. Tickets will be made available to CVSA members first! Not a member? Join here.
