Remembering the Vision of Dr. Wolfgang Hevert

The Dr. Wolfgang Hevert Prize was initiated to remember the work and vision of the former managing director of Hevert-Arzneimittel. Dr. Wolfgang Hevert (deceased in 2003) was a doctor for naturopathy and a pharmacist. He put a lot of energy into the advancement of the relationship between traditional homeopathic complex remedies, modern phytotherapy and therapy-appropriate vitamin preparations and thus contributed to the development of holistic medicine.
The prize dedicated to Dr. Wolfgang Hevert is meant to award and honour the same energy and commitment to scientific work in the field of holistic medicine.
