Hello, I am currently a pre-pharmacy student, and I recently discovered my interest in pharmacy and complementary and alternative medicine. I read that one could specialize in botanical supplements, and then pursue a
pharmacy practitioner career in retail or research, and I was

There is a specific field involving this interest called pharmagnosy. This is an especially hot field in Asian countries where they are more traditionally oriented into herbal research.
