WELCOME TO THE MUSHROOM CLUB OF GEORGIA
UPCOMING MEETINGS

August 3rd, 2016

Cornelia Cho
"Mushrooms as Allies in Medicine"


Mushrooms and other fungi have been intimately intertwined with human health, nutrition and well-being throughout history. With respect to medicine and healing, fungal-based compounds have provided us with key building blocks of modern treatment. Together we will look at past and present methodologies as well as future implications of the interaction of mushrooms and medicine---allopathic, complementary and more.

Cornelia Cho is president of The Mushroom Club of Georgia and a Board-certified pediatrician of 30 years. She currently serves on the Committee for Medicinal Mushrooms for the North American Mycological Association.

In addition to previous Pediatric Emergency Room experience and a Pharmacology Fellowship, she has presented at the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association annual conference several times. She has also studied Mind/Body & Brain science, drug-free therapies for treating trauma, and wilderness medicine preparedness.

With mushrooms, she has found the intersection of many passions: caring for our environment, spending time in the woods, enjoying culinary delights, uncovering cross-cultural and traditional practices, artistic expression, and exploring the world of healing available to all.

As always, try to come around 6:30 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!

Meeting are at the Intown Community Church, 2059 Lavista Road, Atlanta, 30329. We meet from 7:00 to 9:00 with a social time for snacking, identifying mushrooms, browsing guides and making friends. The social time begins at 6:30. Members bring snacks each month. A sign up list for volunteering to bring snacks will be passed around. This is a chance to learn some, connect some and get filled in on some of the club's plans for the year.
