RISE Erie at Senior Fair

August 13, 2018

RISE Erie's Dr. Elizabeth Harrington, Assistant Manager Elizabeth Baney, and RISE Pennsylvania Director of Community Engagement Jill Beck represented GTI & RISE Erie at a Senior Fair sponsored by PA State Representative, Ryan Bizzarro.

Bizzarro’s Chief of Staff, Tim Vickey, estimated 800+ constituents attended, and as he promised, they were lined up and waiting for the doors to open at 9 AM. This was a great opportunity to introduce people to RISE, and to educate the Erie community about the 21 serious medical conditions (in Pennsylvania) that can currently benefit from a form of MMJ. We suspect the PA DOH will see (another!) marked increase in patient numbers the next few weeks.

While we continue to receive more than our share of side-eye, we met hundreds of individuals, and saw some of our favorite patients. We are thankful for the opportunity to continue to provide assistance to those who need it most, to educate the community, and begin to change mindsets…
