Cannabis processor Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF) (Frankfurt: A2JMZC) announced today the opening of its first Zerenia clinic in Medellin, Colombia´s second largest city.
The Medellin clinic, with a grand opening planned for December 8, 2020, will support Khiron´s goal of expanding regional access to the firm’s clinical services and medical cannabis products for patients across the country, with a focus on in-person and telehealth services in Colombia’s largest urban areas. The clinic is located in the San Diego neighborhood of the city, just south of the downtown area and close to public transportation and major roads.
“We launched our Zerenia operations in Bogota in Q1 2020 and in Q2 our Dr. Zerenia telehealth operations began. The clinic data quickly showed that more than 25% of patients were accessing our telehealth services from outside of Bogota. Once proven successful, Khiron will continue to expand its regional presence, in Colombia and beyond,” comments Alvaro Torres, Khiron CEO and Director.
The Zerenia Medellin clinic will be the first in the city, expanding access in the populous Antioquia region. The clinic will provide face-to-face care and teleconsultation through the Doctor Zerenia platform and physical consultation, connecting patients with medical specialists trained in the ethical, safe and responsible prescription of cannabis-based medications, and in the comprehensive treatment of pathologies such as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, depression, headache, epilepsy and Parkinson’s.
