First ‘World Apitherapy Day’ – March 30, 2006

Bees For Life, World Apitherapy Network

World Apitherapy Day:

Dr. Philipp Terc (formerly Filip Tertsch), the first scientific researcher on medical uses of apitoxin, was born on March 30, 1844, Praporiste, Bohemia, Czech Republic, at 9 Praporiste Street, the son of Johann Tertsch and Barbara Stepan (Barbara Tertsch).

As Praporiste is not far from Passau, and March 30 is just the next day after the Apitherapy Congress, Expo and Course in Passau (March 24-29, 2006), all those interested will be able to visit Praporiste and to meet Czech beekeepers and apitherapists, and -who knows- some descendants from Terc/Tertsch family.

This next coming March 30 will be the first celebration of Dr. Terc's birthday and the World Apitherapy Day.
