Native Medicinal Plants and Health

A Science on Tap Event
Ancient cultures began a tradition of herbal remedies that continues to this day -- but what medicines lie right beneath our feet, in the plants of the prairie? More than 200 species of prairie plants native to Kansas have been used medicinally by Native Americans. Ethnobotanist Kelly Kindscher will lead a discussion about bringing traditional knowledge together with botany and medicinal chemistry at this Science on Tap.
