Chris Kilham, Medicine Hunter, spent a day at Mari-Mann Herbs in Decatur, IL this summer signing books, answering customer questions and visiting the herb gardens. His visit was sponsored by EuroPharma, Inc.® (Green Bay, WI) as the grand prize in its national “Win A Date With Chris Kilham” contest. The contest, featured at Natural Products Expo West in March, awarded the winner, Mike King, an all-expenses paid event with Kilham, president of Mari-Man Herbs, Author of 14 books and a frequent guest on such TV shows as The Dr. Oz Show and Fox News Channel’s Headline Health with Dr. Manny Alvarez, Kilham effectively bridges the world of botanical medicine and mainstream media.

The “date” included an all-day visit by the Medicine Hunter to the store for both staff and consumer educational events, media events and dinner at a restaurant of the winner’s choice for all the store’s employees.

“The event at Mari-Mann Herbs the other day reminded me just how much a small local retailer can positively impact the lives of people in a community,” said Chris Kilham. “With its inspired herb garden, a tremendous selection of natural health care products and friendly staff who know a lot and are willing to spend real time, Mari-Mann deeply impressed me. I enjoyed the day immensely, speaking with Mike King and others, sharing insights into some of the plants I've researched, and learning a lot about their herbal garden. I hope the experience was as satisfying for Mari-Mann as it was for me. Thanks to EuroPharma for dreaming up this idea, and to Cheryl Myers, their head of education, who joined me out in Decatur, IL."
