How might we create a new health care system, that is both affordable and sustainable?  Pam will discuss the wisdom that comes from trial and error in 20 years of operating a community clinic. The evolving ideas and reflections of the words "free" and "low cost" and how careful one needs to be in manifestation of the desired outcome.  Pam will discuss a sustainable model of care for all.

Pamela Fischer, RH (AHG) is the founder and executive director of the Ohlone Herbal Center in Berkeley, CA. Ohlone Herbal Center is a non-profit organization serving the community through its Western Herbal medicine school, community clinic, and robust dispensary. It is one of the few schools in the country that operates a year-round community clinic on site.

For 30 years Pamela has been studying plants and herbal medicine. After receiving her degree in eco-psychology, Pam became attracted to the herbal healing path and immersed herself into a well-rounded education provided by the insights and wisdom of Western scientists, Western herbalists, native healers, wise women, and witches. Her basket of tools includes Western herbal theory, Traditional Chinese pulse diagnosis, Ayurveda, and Tibetan medicine. She has spent countless hours and days camping and hiking in our local woods, working with local plant medicine, and teaching about their use and conservation.

Pam is known as a visionary leader and grass-roots organizer. She has inspired generations of herbalists to be a stand for change in our healthcare system. Many of her graduates have and are currently creating similar establishments to provide services locally. In this vein, Pam endeavors to free her community from a broken system and move them toward a era of healthcare based on prevention, compassion, and care.
