Midcoast Lyme Disease Support & Education welcomes Becky DeKeuster, M.Ed., to its Rockland Lyme Disease Support meeting at The Knox Center, 6 White St., Tuesday, Sept. 13, from 6 to 8 p.m.

DeKeuster is a cofounder and director of community and education of the Wellness Connection of Maine, which operates four of Maine’s eight state-licensed medical cannabis dispensaries. DeKeuster has nearly 15 years’ experience in all aspects of the medical cannabis industry on both the west and east coasts.

A former high school teacher and administrator, she believes that education is key to expanding understanding and acceptance of the therapeutic value of this herb, and reducing the stigma sometimes associated with its use.

Anyone who has been considering introducing medical cannabis into their treatment protocol and has questions is welcome. This meeting is free and open to the public. Childcare is not provided, so attendees are encouraged to plan accordingly.
