Medicine and Pharmacy

Video 5: Medicine and Pharmacy deals with current medicine and the hope of finding future medicines using plants and animals from the rain forest. The shaman, Dr. Linnea Smith (a rain forest M.D.), and Chris Simmons (a pharmacist from the United States) discuss the medical and often cultural aspects of medical treatment and pharmacology.
