About ATV

Founding Board members of Alternative Treatment for Veterans include: Dan Stack, DAV Department of Massachusetts; Judy Gosselin, Revolutionary Clinics; Dr. Marion McNabb, C3RN; Stephen Mandile, Veterans Alternative Healing, Inc. (VAH); Matthew McKenna, veteran and cannabis industry consultant.

Alternative Treatment for Veterans has partnered with C3RN to launch a veterans and veteran family members research study with assistance from researchers at UMASS Dartmouth. The research study will examine veterans’ service and medical history, current cannabis use and consumption preferences, current or past history of opioid addiction, and barriers they may face in accessing medical cannabis, such as cost or stigma. Veterans interested in participating in the study will complete an anonymous online survey and see how their results compared to other participating veterans’ answers.
