Author of the groundbreaking text, Medicinal Mushrooms, Dr. Hobbs will discuss the historical and modern uses of fungi for medicine, and their place in modern integrative health and medicinal practices. Discover how mushrooms work to activate our immune responses. A thorough and succinct review of the science and traditional use of the most widely-researched medicinal mushrooms (especially turkey tails, shiitake, cordyceps, maitake, and chaga), based on many years of on-going clinical practice will be presented.

Discover the health-promoting benefits of eating mushrooms regularly, including their nutritional and medicinal value.

A special emphasis will be placed on how to collect or purchase fruiting bodies and make the best extracts and preparations at home. Recipes will also be shared.

Refreshments will be provided and informal mushroom ID will be available  from 7:00 - 7:30.  A discussion of upcoming events will precede our speaker.
