Australasian College Heads to Washington

The American Herbalists Guild 19th Annual Symposium took place October 24-26 at the Town Center Marriott in Redmond, Washington. The conference, titled “Botanical Medicine in Oncology, Immunity, and Chronic Disease,” featured more than twenty alternative medicine professionals.

ACHS President Dorene Petersen attended the conference with Communications Manager and DETC Liaison Lauren Shapiro as a Gold Leaf Sponsors, which helps support the use of herbal medicine as a viable, proactive supplement for traditional medicine.

Several ACHS students also attended the conference and stopped by the ACHS information booth to share their experiences, reflections, and questions with Dorene and Lauren.
