Accredited Ethnobotanical Tours for Healthcare Professionals.
The most recent ABC-sponsored Pharmacy from the Rainforest trip of the 20th century was a huge success. More than 60 people, including two groups of college students studying related subjects, flew to Peru in October 1999. This was the sixth ethnobotanical ecotour to the Peruvian Amazon co-sponsored by ABC, the Texas Pharmacy Foundation, and International Expeditions, and was dedicated to Dr. Varroo E. Tyler, Lilly Distinguished Professor of Pharmacognosy of Purdue University, for all his work in the area of medicinal plants.

The next Peruvian adventure will be October 28 through November 5, 2000. Under consideration is a trip that will combine study of herbal medicine of the Amazon and the Andes.
