This year, the theme of our Seventh Annual Breakfast at the Breakers was:

"The Science of Reversing Aging and Medical Cannabinoids:  Improving the Length and Quality of Life"

Executive Summary:  Investing in the medical cannabis field is coming of age, with advances in society, biotechnology, medicine, politics, and law all supporting the positive, productive, and profitable use of cannabinoids in our society.  Is Florida ready to be the next hub for marijuana use to grow health, wealth, and wellness?  In this conference, we extend our interest in age reversal technologies by highlighting cannabinoid therapies, whose anti-inflammatory properties may alleviate degenerative diseases in a different and possibly complimentary manner as existing age-reversal technologies.  Our experts may be able to bridge the anti-aging and medical cannabis fields together.

We brought together five expert Speakers, and welcome back our fantastic Moderator from our 2017 event.  Please click on their names to read their biographical sketchs.  They included:
