CORRECTION: The date of the NUNM-BTER Foundation Biotherapy Conference, as listed in the "Conferences" section, was inaccurate. The correct dates are: November 9-10, 2019. They were correctly listed in the other sections of the newsletter. Sorry for the confusion; sorry for my oversight. /Ron

Director's Letter

We made it through Spring, and now we are very much into the Summer season. It was a very wet Spring, so there is a lot of vegetation here in Southern California (relatively speaking), and that means a flurry of animals this Summer.

We will be speaking about the medicinal value of some of these animals at some of the upcoming conferences listed below. If you know about a conference not listed, please notify us so we can share the information.

The Biotherapy Conference at National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) will cover multiple modalities, including maggot therapy, hirudotherapy, apitherapy, and phage therapy. If you are a BTER Member, contact us for a special conference discount. If not a member, we will be offering discounts on membership to meeting attendees. More information will be forthcoming.

Until then, best wishes always,
