Meet our speakers!
Ken Wolski RN, MPA ( Visit Ken's Website)
Ken has been a registered nurse since 1976. He is licensed to practice in both NJ and PA. Over several decades, Ken has been committed to shaping public policy. In collaboration with the New Jersey State Nurses Association (NJSNA), Ken spearheaded efforts to adopt a resolution to support legalizing medical marijuana at NJSNA’s Annual Meeting in 2002. This resolution motivated the American Nurses Association to adopt a similar resolution in 2003. NJSNA led the way to pass into law the "New Jersey Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act" in 2010.
Ken also worked with the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA). Ken educated legislators and testified at legislative hearings in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in a successful, decade-long effort to pass a medical marijuana law in Pennsylvania.
Ken served as an expert speaker for medical marijuana programs for nurses and physicians. I testified before numerous legislative committees; wrote letters to the editor and Op Eds; and hosted seminars to educate health professionals and the public in my efforts to bring about high quality, affordable medical marijuana for qualified patients in a safe and secure manner.
