The goal of this webinar is to educate clinicians on a variety of traditional Chinese herbal medicines that have been known to cause toxicity, such as maqianzi and fuzi, with a personal connection to the topic as my mother was licensed in China to practice traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and specialized in herbal medicine. I hope to utilize her firsthand knowledge to provide an additional perspective.
