Using Hive Products for Better Health
Presented by Dasha Adzhigirey
A general manager at Bee Technologies, a Lee's Summit based family business, Dasha will share with us the benefits of using products from the hive for disease prevention and overall better health. Her family started this business 14 years ago, after moving here from Russia. Her father is a professional beekeeper and her mother is a biochemist and self-studied herbalist. This program should be a fascinating journey of simple but extremely effective ideas of how to use bee products such as propolis in everyday living!
