Herbal Medicine: Past and Present
Monday, April 4, 2016
7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Monroeville Public Library Gallery Space

Please join pharmacist Zeena Bassim for a presentation about historical and current uses of herbal medicine. The use of herbs as medication is the first form of healthcare known to civilization, and medicinal herbs have been used in all cultures throughout history. In many communities throughout the world, herbal medicine is still a central part of the healthcare system.

One of the best-known examples of an herb with medicinal uses is ginger, which has a long history dating back 2500 years in Chinese and Indian alternative medicine. The presentation will describe the benefits of ginger, how to use it effectively, and Ms. Bassim's own research on its effects. A number of other herbs and their benefits will also be discussed.

Zeena Bassim holds a B.Sc. in Pharmacy from the University of Baghdad and an M.Sc. in Pharmaceutical Analysis from the University Kebangsaan Malaysia. She has worked as a professional pharmacist and taught as a lecturer on the Faculty of Pharmacy at Lincoln University.
