The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy’s Masters of Science in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics (MCST) program has chosen Sarah A. Chase, executive director of the Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation (CFCR), to be the keynote speaker for the Class of 2022 Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday, May 18, 5 p.m. at the Universities of Shady Grove (USG) in Rockville, Md.
Chase, the first executive director of the CFCR, has dedicated her professional career to working behind the scenes to champion both public and private projects that are mission-driven and have a clear focus on improving communication to advance social justice. For more than 15 years, Chase has worked primarily with start-up companies in the media, broadcast, and communication space. She has held various COO, CFO, communication, and business development positions and worked closely with executive teams in the United States, Europe, and Asia to translate high-level visions into realized corporate entities.
The focal point of her comments will underscore the burgeoning opportunities for “qualified graduates to advance the forward movement of this growing industry – both responsibly and for the betterment of society,” Chase says.
