From the organizers:
The Annual Symposium features over 40 lectures, as well as pre- and post-Symposium intensives, and a NEW Virtual Track with sessions ranging from beginning to advanced. Herbal practitioners, medical professionals, herb students, and herbal newcomers will be able to learn from skilled botanists on plant walks, take part in panel discussions, and find out about leading companies in herbal products, education, and more at the Expo Hall.
This year’s focused track is Bioregional Materia Medica in Clinical Practice and many of the 2018 presentations will be relevant to this timely topic.
Herbalism is centered in place, with the materia medica of herbal medicines employed by herbalists varying to depend on their unique region, culture, and local ecosystems. The plants local to an herbalist create connection to place and people, and around the country bioregional herbalism and localism is thriving.
Some of the world’s most respected herbal educators, practitioners, authors, and researchers will be presenting on diverse topics in bioregionalism, evidence-based research, traditional herbal medicine, wildcrafting and plant cultivation, integrative health, herbal business, and much more.
