Please join us for our General Meeting at the Harvey West Scout House. Doors open at 7, with refreshments and informal mushroom ID from 7:00 - 7:30. A discussion of upcoming events will precede our speaker, Dr.Cornelia Cho.
Dr. Cornelia Cho presents: “Mushrooms from a Korean Perspective”. Although the dynamic is shifting, thanks to the popularity of Korean Dramas and the current chef romance with our ingredients, many people in this country still don’t know much about this culture as distinct from the other East Asian countries of China and Japan. A mushroom club president and a woman of Korean ancestry, she will share her heritage, its particularities and Korea’s cultural, culinary and medicinal relationship with the fungal kingdom. It should be a fun time for all.
Dr. Cornelia Cho graduated from the Medical College of Georgia School of Medicine in 1983. She works in Decatur, Georgia specializing in Pediatrics. She is President of the Mushroom Club of Georgia, and has a long interest in the medicinal aspects of fungi.
