Pharmacy from the Rainforest, 1998-99 tours.
The American Botanical Council, in conjunction with the Texas Pharmacy Foundation, International Expeditions, Inc., and ACEER Foundation, announces the dates for our upcoming ethnobotanical Pharmacy from the Rainforest expeditions. Our most popular expedition to date, the fifth annual workshop in the Peruvian Amazon will be October 31 through November 7, 1998. In addition, we are planning to return to Belize in early 1999 (February 21-28).

Each expedition includes accredited workshops and field excursions designed to foster an appreciation for and an understanding of the importance of medicinal plants. These will be led by prominent experts in the fields of phytomedicine, pharmacognosy, and ethnobotanical and ethnobiomedicinal research, including Mark Blumenthal, Executive Director of the American Botanical Council, and James A. Duke, Ph.D., retired botanist from the USDA. Registered pharmacists can earn a full year of ACPE-approved continuing education credit for participation in a Pharmacy from the Rainforest expedition.
