Alan Lesniewicz Memorial Lecture
Keynote Lecture, 12pm, Room B36, College of Pharmacy

Dr. Timothy Johns is a nutritionist and ethnobotanist whose research interests focus on the traditional uses of plants for food and medicine in relation to issues of contemporary nutrition and health, the understanding of human adaptation in diverse environments and the evolutionary origins of diet and medicine. His work involves field studies with communities in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Canada in conjunction with laboratory analysis of chemical composition and medicinal properties of plants.

About the Atkins Medicinal Garden

The Dorothy Bradley Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden is a garden oasis in the midst of the busy Illinois Medical District located on the corner of Wood and Polk Streets. The Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden provides a scenic backdrop for those enjoying a quiet break. Those lunching or reveling in the scents and colors of the Atkins Garden may overlook the fact that the plants surrounding them have played a crucial role in the history of medicine. But thanks to the generosity of Dr. Robert A. Atkins, Dorothy Atkins’ life as a pharmacist and her interest in medicinal plants are honored and commemorated by the garden.
