Student publication – Silybum monograph

Silybum marianum flower headCongratulations to Maureen Boh, a former student in my pharmacognosy class at ACNT, for getting her work published! Maureen is a very dedicated student, and worked very hard to produce an excellent quality monograph assignment for Pharmacognosy & Herbal Pharmacy about a year ago. As such I offered to coauthor with her to help get it published, and just recently the Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association accepted the monograph.

The monograph on Silybum marianum (St Mary’s Thistle or Milk Thistle) can be seen listed on the most recent ANPA Newsletter, and I have also attached the full monograph below (with permission from Eta Brand, ANPA President and Editor).

Great work Maureen, and again, congratulations!

    Maureen was a former student of mine and an exceptional one. She was diligent and competent and very interested in her studies. Her spirit of excellence is reflected in this very professional and comprehensive work. Thanks to Ian for assisting her in having this fine work published. I'm printing it off and will be using it in the future as a very useful resource.
    All the best Maureen, you have a bright future.
    Cheers, Michelle Beech

      Hi Michelle. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. You have always been so supportive of me and as you know, I hold you in high esteem and consider you a great lecturer and a favourite too. Yes, I owe so much to Ian for his support and help in getting the monograph published. I am also grateful to Eta Brand, the President of ANPA, another inspirational Naturopath, who I was fortunate to have met at the recent 9th NHAA International Conference. Maureen
