Bob was featured on Chicago Tonight: Watch Video
As the first statewide project coordinator for the State of Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program, Bob was appointed by the Governor of Illinois to develop and implement a regulatory framework for the use of cannabis by eligible patients. He draws on his experience working with state and federal agencies, and private businesses to help clients understand and operate in this growing sector of the economy.
As one of the primary architects of the medical cannabis program, Bob understands the concerns and goals of patients, medical professionals and providers, hospitals and health systems, insurers, law enforcement officials and legislators alike. The patient-centered focus of the medical cannabis program was manifested in the creation of the Illinois Medical Cannabis Advisory Board consisting of patients and health care professionals. He guides clients in the engagement of key stakeholders and works with media outlets to develop effective public and private communications strategies.
In addition to his work in the cannabis industry, Bob is a highly experienced health care lawyer. He advises hospitals, health systems, consulting firms, pharmacies, advocacy groups and other clients, helping them understand the effects of federal and state health care reform legislation, ensure compliance with evolving regulatory requirements and implement industry best practices.
