Every summer, the Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden hosts a one-day Garden Walk event that is open to the UIC community and the public. For the past few years, elements of this event have been online/hybrid, so that interested viewers are able to join remotely.

Scientists in the Pharmacognosy Institute and the UIC College of Pharmacy organize the event. In 2023, the event will involve:

  • A tour of the Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden
  • A lecture by Dr. Doel Soejarto, an ethnobotanist, plant taxonomist, Professor, and Adjunct Curator at the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago.
    • Lecture title: Collaborative Research to discover new drug leads and a Love Affair with the Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden: A Journey
    • Lecture time: 11:00 am
