The Dean of the University Center UDC Professor Rosicler Hauagge do Prado welcomed the students of the course on the Use of Medicinal Plants in partnership with AIUTA (International Association of Third Age Universities). The objective of the courses of the University of the Third Age in the UDC is to lead quality education, with responsibility and social inclusion.

During the meeting, the PhD Professors Maria Angélica Bióloga and Denice Almeida, Agronomist, also presented the best use for therapeutic teas, care and side effects and possible intoxications and acidities. "It is very important and gratifying that the elderly can be living this moment that is offered by the UDC. The vast majority of students already have some baggage of teaching, because they have used at least one type of medicinal plant, and then at the same time that we teach, we also learn, "commented Professor Maria Angélica Toscan.
