Allen Dennison

The Colorado State Beekeepers Association is pleased to bring Dr. Allen Dennison to Colorado.  Dr. Dennison is an energetic and motivating speaker and comes to the CSBA with rave reviews from such hallowed halls as the Eastern Apicultural Society (EAS) and the American Apitherapy Society.

But he doesn’t just come with rave reviews–he also comes with sound credentials.  Dr. Dennison is a graduate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.  He has practiced (and continues to practice) Internal Medicine in Rhode Island for the past 28 years.  He is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Brown University.  He is currently employed as the Medical Director at Evergreen House Health Center, Lifecare Centers of America.

“Healing Wounds with Honey” is the focus of his talk.  After his talk, he will present a practical lab on “Making Ointments with Honey”.  Samples will be made and distributed for all to take home and try and are included in the suggested admission fee.  Click here for a write-up with some additional information.

We are privileged to have the opportunity to present Dr. Dennison at two venues along the Front Range.  On Thursday, August 16th from 7-9 pm, Dr. Dennison will be speaking at the Lowell Ranch at Plum Creek in Castle Rock.  Directions and a map may be found here.

The same talk will be delivered to the northern Front Range on Saturday, August 18th from 9-11 am at Berthoud High School in Berthoud.  A map may be found here.

The CSBA is very interested in “getting the word out” to the medical and veterinary communities.  A printable flyer as well as printable postcards for both health care professionals and CSBA members is available.  If you are unable or uninterested in printing these yourself, please contact CSBA President, Beth Conrey at president@coloradobeekeepers.org and I will gladly mail you some hard copies for distribution.  Please provide me with your physical address and desired quantities of each item.
