NVF-Webinar Series: Phytotherapy Excellence.

Webinar ended
The Dutch association of phytotherapy (NVF) announces its first webinar of a series in Phytotherapy excellence for health care practitioners. Medicinal plants present an important source for pharmacologically active substances. Their targeted use complements the medical armamentarium in the sense of “smarter medicines”.

In this free webinar, three international speakers will provide an introduction on phytomedicines, giving insight into their therapeutic potential, quality standards and regulatory status. Practical advice will be given by a Swiss ENT specialist on a selection of medicinal plants in their various therapeutic fields.

By participating in this event, I agree to the processing of my data for the purpose of receiving scientific product information about herbal medicinal products.
