Underutilized Plants:
Their Role in Preventative Medicine, Nutrition, and Sustainability

Tuesday, May 2, 2006
9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Feinstone Hall, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Baltimore, MD

Public health professionals working in some of the most economically
challenged areas of the world are also in proximity to a large array of
underutilized plants.  Traditional knowledge of their medicinal and
nutritional uses is being lost at an alarming rate. This loss is
accompanied by disappearance of the plant species themselves and of the
ecosystems they support. This symposium will increase awareness by
highlighting some of these underutilized plant resources and their
benefits to local populations. We hope that health professionals, plant
researchers and others will attend. Program see over or
