Community Outreach

My Compassion’s work aims to promote patient health, dignity and community impact through program development and sustainability, organizational development, monitoring and evaluation, and community mobilization. My Compassion’s programs include advice and support, evaluation assistance, strategic assessment and organizational planning through community consultation and resource development including print materials, live presentations and webinars.

Community Meetings & Presentations

My Compassion community meetings provide the most accurate information about the benefits of cannabis, qualifying conditions and the laws surrounding patient use. They can also provide opportunities for feedback from attendees that may bring attention to broader concerns, including competency in service and products from dispensaries and local businesses that service them.
