Medical Marijuana: Truth and Consequences
Jun 4 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Medical Marijuana: Truth and Consequences  @ InterContinental Hotel & Conference Center

The Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland (The Free Clinic) presents “Medical Marijuana: Truth and Consequences” on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at the InterContinental Hotel & Conference Center.  As part of its mission to impact health-related public policy, The Free Clinic is holding a community forum around Medical Marijuana – an issue that could have broad impact on our region’s workforce, health care delivery options, safety considerations, research and commercial prospects, taxing options, among other issues.  We plan to review lessons learned from other jurisdictions that have implemented some form of medical marijuana and to help Ohio prepare for such an eventuality, should well-publicized efforts to pass a voter initiative on the subject prove successful.  The Free Clinic has not taken a formal position on this issue, and the forum is not intended to advocate for or against the passage of any proposed initiative. Rather, the forum is designed to provide a rational, fact-based dialogue regarding the relevant issues that such a dramatic legal and policy shift in Ohio would entail.

To learn more about the public policy issues that the community forum will cover, please view our Forum Concept Paper.

Space is limited. To register, visit http://bit.ly/FCForum2015.

Please note that registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the program begins at 8:00 a.m.

The Free Clinic’s 45th Anniversary Gala
Sep 19 @ 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland is pleased to be celebrating 45 years of providing high quality health care to individuals and families, regardless of their ability to pay.  While we have evolved from a free clinic to a community health center, our core guiding principle remains the same: “Health care is a right, not a privilege.” 

In celebration of this important milestone, we will hold a 45th Anniversary Benefit Gala, “Sapphires and Stars: Celebrating the Luminaries Who Made Us Shine!”  The benefit promises to be meaningful for the numerous people involved – from our special list of honorees, to companies like yours that embrace community and corporate responsibility.  The 45th Anniversary Gala is scheduled for Saturday, September 19, 2015, at the InterContinental Hotel.  Proceeds from the gala will enable us to provide uncompensated health care to the thousands of Northeast Ohioans who lack insurance despite the enactment of the Affordable Care Act.

To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please see our 45th Anniversary Gala Sponsorship Package. To purchase tickets, click here! For more information regarding the gala, please contact Joan M. Palumbo, Chief Advancement Officer, at (216) 707-3403 or jpalumbo@thefreeclinic.org.
