We hope to see you soon at bee meetings, but if you can't travel don't miss out! PAm is excited to sponsor the first ever virtual option to attend the American Beekeeping Federation Conference in January. Register to watch a live stream of the Keynotes and General Session stage January 3-7. There will also be access to recordings afterward.
Healthy Hives, an initiative dedicated to identifying tangible solutions to improve honey bee colony health in the U.S. Launched in 2015 with an initial $1 million grant from Bayer, and an additional $500,000 provided in 2020, Healthy Hives has funded beekeeper-driven projects and research at a wide range of academic institutions around the world. Projects are aimed at finding ways commercial beekeeping operations can improve production and efficiency while reducing costs.
My academic path to graduate school was not as straight forward as most of my peers. In fact, I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for some key people that believed in my potential and invested in my career. I was born in Northeast Brazil and lived in my hometown until I graduated from college. During my final year of undergrad, I applied for an agriculture internship in Minnesota, U.S.A, where I met my PhD advisor. Dr. Marla Spivak was the first person to believe in me as a honey bee scientist.
