The ABC James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award went to Aviva Romm, MD, for her new book Botanical Medicine for Women’s Health (pictured above left on the screen).
Dr Duke, a noted economic botanist, author and a co-founding member of the ABC Board of Trustees, described the book as "intellectually well-founded and needed as it is outstanding among its genre. And it is simply good reading”.
“It has an appropriate mix, to my taste, of folklore and modern and recent scientific evidence. I liked it best of the several others that were close runner-ups," he added.
