We believe that wellness is a pursuit and that nature has the ability to empower our health now and in the future. This past decade has seen a powerful shift in the way we define healthy living. From greater access to naturally-grown, organic foods, to the awareness of the dangers in overly-processed, chemically-dependent products, communities everywhere are rediscovering what it means to live well. Surterra Wellness believes that this push for safe, natural ingredients should not stop at the grocery store, and we are focused on transforming the way people take control of their health. Our mission is to provide the purest, safest, naturally-derived medical cannabis-based products that can make a positive impact in our society’s journey for health and wellness.
Surterra Wellness’ Provider Advocacy teams are tasked with a challenging, yet influential task: drive awareness and adoption of industry-leading Surterra Wellness products with physicians to enable access for patients across communities. Providers are the key influencer in patients’ journey for health and wellness, and our Provider Advocacy teams seek to provide knowledge, education and engagement to a wide range of medical professionals who are generalists and specialists. Medical cannabis is a new frontier, and there are significant opportunities to educate physicians and patients. We need passionate people who can embrace their role as a change agent and sign up to a purposeful journey with us!
The Provider Advocate is a seasoned pharmaceutical field executive who will help lead health care provider advocacy and market development efforts across Texas, driving patient access, awareness, and provider and patient education in Texas’ emerging medical cannabis market. Surterra is looking for an expert who will help pioneer Texas’ medical cannabis program as a Surterra Wellness brand ambassador. The Provider Advocate will collaborate with the President of Texas, and the Director of Provider Advocacy, to assist in the development and execution of state-wide strategic and tactical goals that will promote access to medical cannabis and awareness for the company.
