Crouse Hospital Presents “Herbal Supplements: Myth Or Magic” Seminar

09/22/09

Nearly one in five Americans report using herbal supplements to treat medical conditions and for health promotion, yet scant data is available regarding the efficacy of these substances. On Tuesday, October 20, Crouse Hospital’s Integrative Medicine Educational series will feature “Herbal Medications: Myth or Magic” presented by internist and hospitalist, Michael Nupuf, MD, from Oswego. The seminar, free and open to the public, starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Parking in the Marley and Crouse Hospital garages is also free. To register, call 472-2464.

Dr. Nupuf will introduce some of the reasons why people take supplements, and will use an evidence-based approach to discuss whether products such as glucosamine, ginseng, St. John’s Wart and echinacea are helpful in maintaining health and preventing disease.

Dr. Nupuf attended medical school at Ohio State University, completed his internship at General Rose Memorial Hospital and his residency at St. Luke’s Hospital in Denver. He received additional medical training in New Zealand and Scotland, and currently lives in Oswego, NY.
