February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MSTNo Cost
The many ethnic backgrounds and belief systems of the residents of Old Silver Reef resulted in a range of medical practices. Southern Paiutes, Mormon pioneers, Euro-American miners/merchants and Chinese all approached healing in different fashions. Dr. Judy Henck, a resident of New Silver Reef for the last 4 years, is a toxicologist by profession, as well as a gardener and incurable history buff. She holds a PhD in Pharmacology and has spent her career in the safety evaluation of pharmaceuticals and other chemicals. When not traveling for her current toxicology consulting business, she enjoys serving as a gardener for the Silver Reef Museum and townsite.
