The University of Pennsylvania Schools of Medicine and Nursing will sponsor a symposium on September 19th and 20th. It’s titled “Herbal Medicine: Perception, Practice, and Rational Use” Looks like an excellent program. Herbaphiles in the Philadelphia area might want to attend.

The future of herbal medicine
The topics will be of interest to the public and healthcare professionals, according to the invitation. But I think it’s more health professional oriented. More information is here.
