Need to catch up on cutting edge botanical research? We can help with that. This week, we’re joined by ethnobotanist and professor of dermatology Dr. Cassandra Quave. She’ll dive into the impact of biodiversity in botanical research, botanical impacts on the microbiome and skin disease, and just how unique plants really can be. Each Thursday, join Dr. Raja and Dr. Hadar, board certified dermatologists, as they share the latest evidence based research in integrative dermatology.
