'My name is Lauren and I have had the pleasure of taking part ownership of tru|med from the beginning where I work as the onsite Registered Nurse/patient educator. As a nurse, I strive to promote health, prevent illness and alleviate suffering. It's important to educate all patients on proper usage of cannabis and truly believe that medical marijuana can improve a person's quality of life. I'm proud and very blessed to be a part of the tru|med family.
