The former chair of the Botanical Medicine and Midwifery departments returns to campus to teach classes, including one on May 16, 2013 about "Kitchen Medicine."

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.Mary Louise Bove, ND
