The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will host a free lecture on homeopathic medicine. The lecture will be held at
the Barrington Terrace Learning Center, 5175 Tamiami Trail East, in Naples on Monday, March 5 from 1:00 pm to 2:30pm.
This program will offer an overview of homeopathy: its history, definition and tenets. It will further define and explain the homeopathic pharmacopoeia of the United States and the Materia Medica, the study of the therapeutic properties of any substance used for healing. The program will also discuss the specifics of the federal regulation of these medicinal products. Participants will enjoy learning about the two physicians who practiced homeopathic medicine in Naples and on Marco Island during the early part of the 20th century.
The lecture will be conducted by Edward Miracco, who spent 34 years with FDA. He first worked as a field investigator in the New York office. In 1988 he transferred to FDA headquarters, the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Office of Compliance, in Rockville, MD. There he served as a Compliance Special Assistant responsible for directing field offices in their pursuit of violators.
This program is free of charge and open to the public. No pre-registration is required. For more information, please contact Sarah Eldridge at (239) 598-6210.
