Who is someone you’re grateful for that has made an extraordinary impact in the medical cannabis community?

On November 10, 2021, Affinity Patient Advocacy is hosting the Change Influencers in Medical Cannabis Livestream Event, created to celebrate those making a significantly
positive impact on the medical cannabis community. 

After the passing of Affinity Patient Advocacy’s Founder’s father, Albert J. DiArcangelo Sr., due to cancer, Christina DiArcangelo felt it was only right to congratulate and honor those whose work in the medical cannabis community provides relief, hope, and
healing.

We have a very special episode where our host Ry has the opportunity to sit down with the Co-Host of Marijuana Today, and Licensing Manager for CuraleafHeather Sullivan! It is always fascinating to hear everyone’s journey that brought them to cannabis. Heather worked at the same company for 13 years, before discovering the job for her was in something she has enjoyed since her 20’s. Speaking about the thought leaders and abundance of companionship in the cannabis space, if you are feeling that you are a square peg in a round hole, much like our host and Heather did, or even if you just want to change directions, do not rule cannabis out. It is a vast and caring community, one that all of us here at WeedBudz are happy to be apart of. Until next time!
