Director's Letter

Here we are at the end of the year, frantically planning events and projects for 2019. But I can not leave 2018 without thanking all of our subscribers for your support. Whether you attended a conference or read one of our scientific publications, whether you liked a facebook post or simply read this newsletter, you helped us serve our mission - to advance healthcare through education and research in biotherapy.

As you will see below, a Journalist is coming to Southern California, looking for patients or therapists with experience in bee venom therapy (BVT). Please contact him if you can help. And if you are a patient or therapist with another biotherapy experience, let him know about that, too.

Finally, if you have any Biotherapy needs or desires - webinars on leech therapy, workshops on bee venom therapy, certification to do maggot therapy, patient education materials - just drop us a message, and we will assist you in every way we can. Help us help you.

With Best Wishes this Holiday Season, and Always,
