SAN DIEGO, Jan. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — ECHO Connection (the “Company”), a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to educating the world, hosting collaborative platforms, and providing hope for those in need of cannabinoid-based therapies, announced today that it has appointed Brian Higuera as its new President and Chairman of the Board of Directors.
A devoted husband and father, Brian Higuera introduced cannabidiol (CBD) oil into the regimen of his special needs daughter to help her have a better quality of life. Since then, Brian has become a well-known CBD advocate, serving on ECHO Connection’s Board of Directors as Treasurer and Secretary and attending conventions and city council meetings to share his family’s story and advocate for cannabinoids. In his new role, he will lead his executive team in organizing fundraisers, managing donation funds, connecting with families in need, overseeing product delivery and gaining supporters through social media and digital marketing.
“When I was asked to step into this new position I was honored and excited,” said Brian Higuera, President of ECHO Connection. “I took a look back on the last seven years of my daughter’s life and knew that the next chapter of my life is meant to be spent changing as many lives for the better as I can, just like ECHO has for my family, through the benefits of CBD. I will do everything I can to change one heart and one mind at a time so that cannabinoids will be researched, and eventually accepted, as the first line of treatment for many conditions. In accepting this new leadership role, I want to use my own experience to further the national conversation on CBD as a wellness product.”
ECHO Connection is a non-profit organization that aims to educate and support those pursuing cannabinoids for their therapeutic benefits in a trustworthy, safe environment. ECHO Connection strives to offer charitable support to ease the burden on families of children with disabilities or special needs. ECHO has donated CBD products to more than 150 families in the US, Mexico, Brazil, and throughout Europe and has raised more than $2 million since it was founded in 2017.
