EDC Healthcare: Case Study

Bent Creek Institute supports therapies rooted in botanicals and natural supplements. The Germplasm Repository is the first comprehensive North American gene bank for medical flora. Bent Creek Institute combines medicinal plants with validated science, advanced healthcare options for patients, practitioners, and the industry as a whole.
Functions include building a national reference library, helping advance the Integrative Health program at Mission Hospital Asheville NC, serving as a nonprofit botanical safety plant testing lab, and consulting with area companies that manufacture botanical health care products.
"Integrative healthcare is bringing substantive economic development and scientific focus on the kind of lifestyles people prefer here. We’re here to validate and verify these properties, separating the folklore from the scientifically verifiable."
- Greg Cumberford, President, Bent Creek Institute
