Emblem (TSXV:EMC) announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding between its health and education subsidiary GrowWise Health Limited, and Durham College to begin integrating cannabis-related learning into many of DC’s post-secondary programs and building professional development courses.
As quoted in the press release:
The memorandum of understanding is the first-ever agreement in the province of Ontario between a cannabis education service and a post-secondary institution.
“This is an incredibly exciting opportunity, both for GrowWise and for Durham College,” says Adam Saperia, President of GrowWise Health. “GrowWise is already a leader when it comes to education for patients. As interest in the cannabis industry grows, so too does the need for education, and GrowWise is ideally positioned to meet these professional educational demands for healthcare professionals and the wider market.”
The agreement builds on the college’s highly successful Medical Cannabis Fundamentals for Business Professionals course which was introduced in 2017 by DC’s School of Continuing Education in collaboration with GrowWise.
