Always dedicated to staying at the forefront of the industry on behalf of her patients, Dr. Burns has identified challenges within the medical marijuana community.

In 2012, Dr. Burns was the first in the state of Arizona to pass the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine’s (AACM) physician certification test. In addition to educating patients and clinicians about the therapeutic potential of Cannabis, she also advocates at the legislative level to help give the medical marijuana patient a voice.
