American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists Dietary Supplements Forum examines science behind nutraceuticals

Arlington, VA -- June 12, 2000 -- Scientists, leaders of scientific associations, nutraceutical companies, universities and government agencies will gather at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Dietary Supplements Forum: Exploring the Science of Nutraceuticals, June 28-30, 2000 to discuss the burgeoning field of nutraceuticals.
