by boiron on September 21st, 2011

Residents of the greater Philadelphia area—Are you interested in taking your knowledge of homeopathy and other complementary medicines to the next level? Are you a history buff, a medical professional, or just someone who wants to know more? Then join us on Monday at 6:30 p.m. for “The History of and Contemporary Advances in Botany, Herbal and Alternative Medicine,” a two-part lecture given by Alfred Ernest Schuyler, PhD, Curator Emeritus of Botany, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, and Boiron USA’s very own president and CEO, Ludovic Rassat.

Both thought leaders in their respective fields, Schuyler and Rassat will offer an exciting lecture on botany’s place in medical history, as well as its standing in medicine today. Schuyler will explore the use of botany, and herbal and alternative medicines in the U.S. during the Revolutionary War, and how these botanicals and herbal remedies were a common feature in the arsenal of the late 18th-century physician, while Rassat will cover the renewed and increasing interest in homeopathic and herbal remedies in the world of medicine today. Following the lecture, Dr. George Wohlreich, Executive Director of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, will moderate a brief discussion and Q&A session with the audience.

Co-sponsored by The College of Physicians and The American Revolution Center, this lecture is part of a series of lectures and discussions supported by The Richard Lounsbery Foundation of New York and Washington entitled “Les Seminars: Revolutionary Ideas.” The goal of the series is to make comparisons and show advances in education and the health sciences from the late 1700s to today.
