The Daya Foundation is a non-profit organization whose objective is alternative therapies research and promotion aimed to relief human suffering. Daya also collaborates and advices with the creation of public policies that promote people’s physical and spiritual well-being.
Daya in Sanskrit means “compassionate love”, to have empathy, to feel other people’s pain as our own. This is the spirit we want to represent, to feel other people’s urgencies and needs as our own. We believe that human pain is often inevitable, it is part of human existence, however suffering can undoubtedly be relieved.
Foundation activities include mainly these three areas:
- Patient care and counseling.
- Medical cannabis research projects.
- Advising and conferences.
Daya Foundation has organized the II Santiago International Medicinal Cannabis Seminar with Fundación Alchimia Solidària’s collaboration.
The event consists of two days of presentations with the latest medical cannabis advances. There is a select group of national and international exhibitors who will talk about their experience in research, as well as care of patients treated with cannabis.
The seminar is mainly focused in medical field professionals and students, who wish to learn about the latest in cannabis and cannabinoids scientific research treatments for different pathologies. The event main objective is to give health professors the opportunity to learn about the scientific evidences that support the use of cannabis and cannabinoids for medical treatment.
