NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc. Subsidiary, Elevated Education Inc., Engages ACCME Certified Accreditation Firm


Highly Regarded Certification Will Enable Launch of Curriculum to Health and Wellness Industry

OREM, UT, March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewBridge Global Ventures, Inc. (“NewBridge” or the “Company”), (OTCQB: NBGV), a company focused on the emerging and dynamic legal and regulated cannabis industry, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Elevated Education, Inc. (“Elevated”), has engaged an ACCME certified firm to assist in Elevated attaining an AMA Category 1 CME status for its first 11 medical education modules. Elevated will offer online and in-person delivery of the continuing medical education for doctors and healthcare professionals world-wide. With modules from Introduction of the Endocannabinoid System to Pharmacology and the clinical use of medicinal cannabis, Elevated’s curriculum is likely the most thorough to be made available to the Health and Wellness industry to date. 

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) is a nonprofit organization responsible for accrediting institutions that offer continuing medical education (CME) to physicians and other healthcare professionals. Accreditation standards ensure that CME is designed to be independent, free of commercial bias, and based on valid content. ACCME is recognized as a national model by federal and state government agencies, other healthcare accrediting bodies, and the profession of medicine.

“The Company’s offering of Elevated’s educational curriculum is one of the four key components of the NewBridge future growth pillars,” said Mark Mersman, Chief Executive Officer of NewBridge. “Attaining the stature of an AMA Category 1 CME accreditation for the first 11 modules will allow the Company to begin to confront and address the lack of understanding of cannabis and its uses in the medical community and propel the Company along its path to success.”
