HIGH POINT, N.C., March 19, 2014 – High Point University’s School of Pharmacy is launching a lecture series designed to present ideas and products from around the globe to better manage disease in the United States.
The inaugural Student and Community Health Care Lecture Series will be held at 6 p.m. in Norton Hall, room 101, on April 3. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.
The speaker will be Amy Greeson, a Thomasville pharmacist, global explorer and the founder of Healing Seekers, an educational resource serving the community and world as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit. She also serves as the CEO of Natural Discoveries, Inc., a company focused on drug discovery from plant sources around the globe. Greeson will deliver a presentation about searching for cures to common diseases by traveling to remote locations around the globe and developing relationships with healers in other cultures.
The series is organized by Dr. Ron Ragan, dean of the School of Pharmacy at HPU, as part of the school’s commitment to the university, the city of High Point and the surrounding community. The goal of the seminar series is to bring together learners, health professionals, health care consumers and community members to create a venue for robust conversations and discussions about patient care and health care research.
“The series will provide the opportunity to better understand drug discovery and disease management from a variety of perspectives ranging from a very traditional Western Medicine approach to those much more holistic,” says Ragan. “We will invite guests that challenge the status-quo in health care today to help us all become better informed health care providers. The School of Pharmacy is dedicated to giving back to our community and region, and this is one way we will do that.”
