Mary Bove, ND (’90), will be on Bastyr University’s Kenmore campus in May as the second Endowed Mitchell Visiting Scholar. Throughout the month she will teach a variety of classes in the herbal sciences and naturopathic medicine programs, as well as visit teaching clinics and present lectures to the public.
This honor is a professional homecoming for Dr. Bove who obtained her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and midwifery certification from Bastyr College of Natural Health Sciences. She is also a former chair of Bastyr’s Departments of Botanical Medicine and Midwifery and served as a faculty member. What’s more, she worked closely with Dr. Bill Mitchell, Bastyr University co-founder and the man for whom this endowment is named.
Dr. Bove is the author of the "Encyclopedia of Natural Healing for Children and Infants", considered an authoritative reference on natural pediatric medicine. Dr. Bove co-authored "Herbs for Women’s Health" and has been published in many magazines, journals and collaborative books on botanical and natural medicine. She lectures and teaches internationally on the topics of naturopathic medicine, botanical medicine, pediatrics, natural pregnancy, childbirth, traditional food medicine and mind-body healing. In collaboration with Gaia Herbs Dr. Bove developed an herbal remedy line designed specifically for children and is an educational, medical consultant within the natural product industry.
We are honored to host her visit and invite you to join us to learn from this esteemed scholar. Dr. Bove’s time at Bastyr will culminate with a lecture, open to the public, on May 16, 2013 on using easily-grown herbs and food as “Kitchen Medicine.”
