October 8, 2020 Meeting: Dr. Marcel Durieux will present,

Honey and wound healing.   What do we really know?

I am a hobby beekeeper with an interest in honey bee biology. Because of travel for medical work, I have been lucky to come into contact with beekeepers and beekeeping practices in Africa. I learned things from my readings and experiences that I felt were worth sharing, and that has resulted in a number of lectures.

As a physician I’ve been interested for quite some time in the claims for honey as a wound healing agent – and with the apparent lack of scientific rigor in making these claims. I eventually decided to look through the literature myself, and this talk is the result. It summarizes what we know about honey and wound healing in a manner that is understandable for the non-specialist, and shows what we can honestly claim and what not.

Carl Lefko will send a meeting invitation prior to Thursday.  This meeting, like the others, will be recorded.
