2017 Keynote Speakers

Montel Williams is one of the highest profile advocates for medical cannabis in the country. He has used medical cannabis products to effectively manage the symptoms of his Multiple Sclerosis (MS) since his diagnosis with the disease in 1999.


Williams began his professional career in the United States Marine Corps. He was the first black Marine selected to attend the Naval Academy Prep School to go on to graduate from the US Naval Academy and be commissioned as a Naval Officer. He earned a degree in general engineering and a minor in international security affairs. Over the course of his 22-year military career, Williams earned three Meritorious Service Medals, two Navy Commendation Medals, two Navy Achievement Medals, and other military awards and citations. Williams was also given a Meritorious Service Award for his positive portrayal of the military throughout the seventeen year run of The Montel Williams Show.


Williams earned his media celebrity status as an Emmy Award winning television personality whom Americans invited into their homes for more than 17 years. Alongside his TV career, he's become an international speaker, author, entrepreneur and advocate for patients worldwide.


At the height of his TV career, in 1999, Williams experienced his first symptoms of MS-a sharp and 24-hour neuropathic pain in his feet and legs. When pharmaceuticals proved ineffective, his doctor recommended medical cannabis as part of his treatment. Ever since, Williams has been using cannabis products as a medication to manage the debilitating symptoms of his MS.


Williams became an early advocate of medical cannabis law reform in the US. Back when he started as an advocate, patients were being dragged out of their homes in wheelchairs by the police for using cannabis to treat their pain, and Williams was one of the few high profile voices on Capitol Hill fighting for their rights. Over the past two decades,  he has worked to pass medical cannabis legislation in key states and led the push for military veterans to access medical cannabis without the threat of losing benefits.


When Williams first began using cannabis, there was little research into its medical uses. Williams sought out the latest in cannabis manufacturing technologies and research and worked closely with a formulator to ensure that his medicine was the highest quality available.


As the founder of Lenitiv Scientific, LLC and the LenitivLabs brand, Williams remains dedicated to delivering high-quality and consistent products to patients-like himself-who rely on cannabis as medicine.

Dr. Sue Sisley MD is an Arizona-based physician practicing Internal Medicine and Psychiatry.


She works as Medical Director for medical cannabis license holders in 11 different states/territories from Hawaii to Puerto Rico to New York.


Sue serves as Site Principal Investigator for the only FDA-approved randomized controlled trial in the world examining safety/efficacy of whole plant marijuana in combat veterans with treatment-resistant post traumatic stress disorder PTSD.  Dr. Sisley is on faculty at Colorado State University PUEBLO campus, recruited for core planning team to organize the CSUP "ICR Institute of Cannabis Research" in Pueblo, Colorado.


Dr. Sisley has been a Member of Nevada ILAC Medical Cannabis Commission for the past two years outlining regulations for laboratory testing including limits on pesticides, residual solvents and other guidelines that are currently being used as a model for other states medical cannabis laws.



Uma V.A. Dhanabalan, MD, MPH, FAAFP is a highly respected physician trained in Family Medicine and Occupational & Environmental Medicine, Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians and a Diplomat Certified in Cannabis Medicine.

She did her Fellowship in heavy metals. She received the Resident Research Award from the American College of Occupational & Environmental Medicine for her research project: "Occupational & Environmental Exposure to Lead in South India"  
Dr. Dhanabalan is the Founder/CEO of Global Health & Hygiene Solutions, LLC. established in 2006.  Global Health and Hygiene Solutions mission is to promote wellness and prevent illness. She has worked for Kimberly Clark as their Regional Medical Director for Asia Pacific. She has worked for the Hanford Project in Richland Washington.  The Hanford Site created in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project, manufactured the Plutonium that was used in the first nuclear bomb, the bomb detonated over Nagasaki, Japan. The operation at Hanford created one of the largest and most complex cleanup projects in the USA. Weapons production resulted in more than 43 million cubic yards of radioactive waste and over 130 million cubic yards of contaminated soil and debris.
Dr. Dhanabalan practice at Uplifting Health and Wellness, in Natick MA is dedicated to "Educate! Embrace! and Empower "her patients and public about Total Health Care with treatment options using Cannabis to promote wellness and prevent illness. She is actively involved with multiple originations, her passion to educate the public and health care providers that Cannabis is a plant medicine. She sees an array of patients from age 18 and above, with various medical conditions who are using medical marijuana for treatment of their illnesses. She is a speaker and activist, Dr. Dhanabalan states "Cannabis is not an entrance drug, it is an exit drug from pharmaceuticals and narcotics."
David (Dedi) Meiri, PhD, is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Biology at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology and a member of the Technion Integrated Cancer Center. Dr. Meiri's scientific background is highly diverse; He holds a M.Sc. in Biochemistry and a Ph.D. in plant biotechnology from Tel Aviv University. Dr. Meiriconducted his post-doctoral fellowship at the Ontario Cancer Institute where he focused on the role of the GEF-H1 protein in tumor invasion and metastasis. During his post-doctoral studies, he expanded his knowledge in human biology and cancer pathogenesis and succeeded within a very short timeframe, to receive worldwide recognition as an expert in the fields of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and small GTPases. Upon completion of his post-doctoral fellowship, Dr Meiri took a position at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, where he heads the "Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Cannabinoid Research".
Presently, his lab is investigating the therapeutic potential of phytocannabinoids, the unique active compounds of Cannabis. On-top of a few other studies conducted in the lab, the main focus is to determine the antitumor effects of cannabinoids, including the anti-metastatic and pro-apoptotic effects phytocannabinoids exert, on a spectrum of tumor cells.
In addition to 'basic science', Dr. Meiri collaborates with cannabis growers, clinicians and major manufacturers and distributors of medical cannabis in the purpose of revolutionizing cannabis treatment. He is operating the "Cannabis Database Project" and his lab is currently involved in eight clinical trials covering diverse aspects of cannabis treatment, such as: colon disease, pain prevention, cancer treatment and epilepsy.
Dr. Meiri is also highly involved in government regulations and he is a residing member in several committees of the Israel's Ministry of Health, which seek to advance our fundamental understanding of optimal cannabis usage and minimization of adverse side effects.

Dr. Jack Henion is an internationally recognized leader in the field of MS and LC/MS. He is credited with nine patents and has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals. In addition to his work at Advion, Dr. Henion managed a major research laboratory at Cornell University, where he served as a professor of toxicology for more than 24 years and is now Emeritus Professor of Analytical Toxicology. Under his leadership and vision, Advion has established itself as one of the largest and most respected LC/MS contract laboratories in the world and a leader in chip-based nanoelectrospray mass spectrometry.



Dr. Henion earned a bachelor’s degree from Alfred University, a master’s of science from the Rochester Institute of Technology, a Ph.D. from the State University of New York in Albany and a post doctoral appointment at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC. The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists has recognized him as a Fellow for his contributions to analytical chemistry. In recognition of his contributions in the field of MS, Dr. Henion has received honorary doctorate degrees from the University of Ghent, Belgium and the University of Uppsala, Sweden. Dr. Henion is also a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Society for Mass Spectrometry and the Royal Society of Chemistry (BA FRSC).
