SE corner of Wood and Polk Streets, Chicago, IL 60612



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.

Faculty and scientists including postgraduate trainees in the Pharmacognosy Institute and the UIC College of Pharmacy organize the event, involving tours of the Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden as well as a lecture by an expert on a topic related to medicinal plants and/or plants used for human health. In 2024, the Garden Walk will feature the Distinguished Annual Norman R. Farnsworth Lecture, presented by Dr. Elaine Elisabetsky, an ethnopharmacologist and Professor at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Porto Alegre, Brazil).
