This course will provide an overview of the history of homeopathy, discuss two homeopathic physicians who lived and practiced on Marco Island during the early part of the 20th century, define homeopathy and explain its basic tenets. A definition and explanation of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States will also be included, as well as information on the federal regulation of these medicinal products.

In 1988 he transferred to FDA headquarters, the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Office of Compliance, in Rockville, MD. There he served as a Compliance Special Assistant responsible for directing field offices in their pursuit of violators.
