Functional Forum Interview: Medical Cannabis with Jeff Chen

The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce its first forum on one of the most interesting, timely, and controversial topics in medicine: medical cannabis. At the genesis of the functional and integrative medicine movement in the 1960’s, there were a number of doctors who realized that cannabis was a powerful herb and had significant healing properties. This led to the further discussion of other herbs and other natural compounds that could affect health in a meaningful way. In this forum, we will look at all aspects to do with medical cannabis. This information is useful whether you are in America or in any other country around the world. We look forward to a really exciting forum.

Dr. Jeff Chen is a graduate of the specialized dual degree MD/MBA program at UCLA. He has spent the past four years working at the intersection of academia, industry, nonprofit sector and government to accelerate research into the health effects of cannabis. Dr. Chen has spoken on the topic of cannabis at venues ranging from the RAND Corporation and Senator Feinstein’s Office to the Yale School of Management and Nexus. His work has been covered by outlets ranging from the Wall Street Journal to Rolling Stone. Dr. Chen is a David Geffen Fellowship recipient, Anderson Fellowship Recipient, UCLA Wolfen Entrepreneurial Award Recipient, U.S. patent holder, and a published author in cancer research. He is a member of the Helena Group and a World Economic Forum “Globalshaper”. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Cornell University where he studied Biology, Business, and Music.
