      • President and Founder, SC Compassionate Care Alliance
        Biography
          Jill Swing is the President and Founder of SC Compassionate Care Alliance. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina and has eleven-year-old twins, Winfield and Mary Louise. Mary Louise has Cerebral Palsy and severe epilepsy. Lack of positive results from pharmaceutical drugs led her in search of alternative treatments. After learning about potential benefits from Cannabidiol (CBD) for seizures, Jill worked with state legislators to legalize access to the cannabis derivative in 2014. She continued to support legalization of a comprehensive medical cannabis after discovering that access to CBD was limited and whole plant therapies were often more effective. She turned a Facebook group into a state-wide advocacy organization in 2017. The mission of SCCCA is to educate patients, law makers and communities on the benefits of medical cannabis.

        Abstract:

        In this panel discussion, parents of medically compromised children using cannabis discuss their experiences of what led them to start cannabis therapy, what delivery methods they currently use and what improvements have been observed. Bioavailability and research will also be briefly discussed.

        Learning Objectives: 

        1. The goal of using medical cannabis is most often to improve quality of life, not to cure
        2. Besides finding the proper cannabis profile and dosing, finding the best delivery method for each patient is one of the most important objectives
