"Mushrooms as Allies in Medicine"
Mushrooms and other fungi have been intimately intertwined with human health, nutrition and well-being throughout history. With respect to medicine and healing, fungal-based compounds have provided us with key building blocks of modern treatment. Together we will look at past and present methodologies as well as future implications of the interaction of mushrooms and medicine---allopathic, complementary and more.
Cornelia Cho is president of The Mushroom Club of Georgia and a Board-certified pediatrician of 30 years. She currently serves on the Committee for Medicinal Mushrooms for the North American Mycological Association.
In addition to previous Pediatric Emergency Room experience and a Pharmacology Fellowship, she has presented at the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association annual conference several times. She has also studied Mind/Body & Brain science, drug-free therapies for treating trauma, and wilderness medicine preparedness.
With mushrooms, she has found the intersection of many passions: caring for our environment, spending time in the woods, enjoying culinary delights, uncovering cross-cultural and traditional practices, artistic expression, and exploring the world of healing available to all.
As always, try to come around 6:30 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!
