Dr. Jim Affolter has traveled from China to South America researching the important role plants play in both traditional and modern medicine. More recently, as Director of Research at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia and Horticulture Professor at UGA, he has been studying our native flora as a source of medicinal cures.
