Kate Sciacca: Marijuana (5:30-6:30 PM)
Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 5:30 PM until 6:30 PM
Beacon House Community Room
19 Myrtle St
Medications can cause side effects. The use of multiple medications multiplies that risk, especially for older adults. Marijuana may offer a way of managing selected symptoms with fewer side effects. With the legalization of both medical and recreational marijuana in Massachusetts, its use among older adults is growing. But before you run down to the local pot shop you should consult with a medical professional. Join Nurse Practitioner Kate Sciacca, and pharmacist Mara Hofherr, PharmD to learn about and discuss the science behind marijuana, the latest evidence on its uses and risks, and the various forms it comes in, from oils, tinctures and salves, to old-fashioned buds. Meet at Beacon House, 19 Myrtle Street, Community Room. BHV members only. Free.
