Comments from Dr. Aggarwal:
The video of a talk I did 9 months ago at the NIH/ National Cancer Institute posted this week. My talk goes from timestamp: 1:42-2:37
I was an invited Guest Faculty asked to describe my research and perspectives on the topic of Cannabis and Cancer at this US Federal Health research agency. It was an awesome opportunity to discuss the stigmatization and politicization within the health agencies themselves which contribute to health injustices and what can be done to remedy it. I got to share highlights of my work over the span of something like 18 years. Dr Jeff Hergenrather’s talk after mine is not to be missed. This was a pretty unique experience. As much of my training was funded by the NIH and I trained there for a year as well, this was my chance to report back, with senior scientists at NIDA, NCI, and NCCIH in the audience.
