Virtual Urban Alleyway Herbwalk with Dr. Rona Sherebrin

 

Thursday December 8th 2022 PM Eastern US Time

 

 

For our nineteenth webinar,  Dr. Rona Sherebrin, VBMA Past President, will present a Virtual Urban Alleyway Herbwalk. Only $95.00 for VBMA Members, includes the live webinar and unlimited access to the recording!

 

 

WEBINAR TOPIC:

 

Do you think you and your clients' only source of medicinal herbs is expensive capsules and tinctures? Join Dr. Rona Sherebrin, VBMA Past President, for a virtual herb walk in an urban alleyway, to learn how to identify some plant allies that are probably growing nearby or even in your own backyards!

 

ABOUT DR. SHEREBRIN:

 

Dr. Sherebrin received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree with honors from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1991. After ten years in practice she became increasingly frustrated with the chronic nature of the diseases she saw in her patients, and the inability to do more for them than suppress symptoms. She began studying Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) to address the underlying disorders that produced the symptoms. Dr. Sherebrin became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist in 2005, and has completed advanced training in Veterinary Tui-Na and Veterinary Herbal Medicine. She often has veterinarians training in acupuncture intern with her, as well as lecturing to both veterinarians and lay groups. She is also an active member of the American Animal Hospital Association (Scientific Conference Committee), the Association of Veterinary Acupuncturists of Canada (Ontario Regional Delegate, Chair, Education Committee, Basic Veterinary Acupuncture Course Coordinator and lecturer), the American Holistic Veterinary Medicine Association (Scientific Journal Literature Committee), International Veterinary Acupuncture Association (Electronic Library Committee) and Past-President of the Veterinary Botanical Medicine Association. When not working or lecturing she somehow finds time for her husband, three children, two cats, and gardening. Traveling to interesting mountainous places to hike is “high” on her list of recreational pursuits; recent trips have been to the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina (Appalachian Trail), the Yukon, and the Negev desert in Israel.
