On Thursday, November 10, from 6:30pm-8:3pm the Embassy of Greece will proudly present its next installment in the series "Health, Nutrition, and Fitness: From Ancient to Modern Times", a presentation by Alain Toulwaide titled "Ancient Greek Medicine in the Twenty First Century". Dr. Toulwaide is the Scientific Director of the Institute for the Preservation of Medical Traditions and a Research Associate at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution.

Ancient Greek manuscripts have brought into the 21st century the knowledge, science, and wisdom of ancient Greek physicians and healers, who were able to use with great efficacy the therapeutic properties of natural substances. Nowadays, this body of knowledge is still unique source of information for medical research and a healthy living. Dr. Toulwaide will present highlights from the results of his long lasting research and his prestigious collection of ancient medical manuscripts located at the Smithsonian Institution.
