Ancient Roots, Modern Medicine: The Middle East

This video explores connections between modern and traditional medicine as they converge in Jordan. Noting that some key modern medications and treatments used by Bedouins are plant-based, this video explores the role of medicine in Bedouin culture, the impact of environmental changes on the culture, and the connections to modern medical research. This video thus explores the traditional and the modern and locates an important role for the former in influencing the latter.
