November Meeting: The Medical Marijuana Industry in Pennsylvania

The November Chapter Meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Plymouth Meeting, PA. The Board of Directors will meet at 5:30 pm; all ASA members are welcome. The general meeting starts at 6:30. The guest speaker will be Dr. Jonathan Gusdorff, DO, Medical Director and Managing Partner of the Firefly Dispensaries in south central Pennsylvania. Dr. Gusdorff will discuss “The Medical Marijuana Industry in Pennsylvania.”

Dr. Gusdorff is the rare physician who succeeds both in medicine and in business. After a decade as a practicing neuroradiologist, clinic Director, and Associate Professor at Oklahoma State University Medical Center, he co-founded CareSTAT Urgent Care Centers, which he sold successfully after three years. Today, Dr. Gusdorff is growing Firefly Dispensaries, which serves patients in the Pennsylvania medical marijuana program.

Dr. Gusdorff followed up his B.A. in Psychology from Hofstra University with post-baccalaureate pre-med studies at Columbia University in New York. He earned his DO at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he also served an Internship. After a Residency in Diagnostic Radiology at the Bryn Mawr Hospital and a Fellowship in Neuroradiology at the Emory University School of Medicine, Dr. Gusdorff worked in Neuroradiology for a decade before co-founding CareSTAT Urgent Care Centers.

Dr. Gusdorff will talk about the market for medical marijuana -- who can benefit from using it -- about the business model and the regulatory environment, and whether the growing market for medical marijuana will provide a steppingstone to recreational legalization. Dr. Gusdorff’s presentation is sure to be of interest to ASA members in all disciplines. As seating for this talk is limited, please register early for this educational evening which qualifies for 2 hours credit toward ASA reaccreditation.
