I'm off to Malta today to receive my knighthood. I fly Australia-Dubai-Cypress-Malta(CRIKEY!) The investiture ceremony is Monday in a 16th century palace. I'll post pictures when I get back to Oz next week.
Sir Gary is the Australian representative of the World Federation of Integrated Medicine and Sir Jason Winters All Natural Wellness Products, founded by Malta knighthood recipient, Sir Jason Winters and currently run by Sir Jason's son, Sir Raymond Winters also a Malta knighthood recipient. I found much interesting reading about this organization using Google: The Federation for Integrated Medicine, a charity initiated at the suggestion of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, has as its purpose the comprehensive integration of complementary and orthodox medicines. This will be achieved by the attainment of the following objectives: TO PROMOTE and support scientific research into complementary medical treatments and their integration with orthodox medical treatments; TO PROVIDE educational programs and training support for doctors, nurses and therapists in integrated medicine; TO PROMOTE wider awareness of the clinical and economic benefits of effective integrated health and medical practices, both among health care professionals and in the wider community; TO COLLECT, codify, disseminate and thereby protect the knowledge of complementary medical practices and treatments for the benefit of future generations of practitioners; TO COLLABORATE with other medical and complementary organizations thus benefiting from all sources of knowledge. More info can be found at www.sirjasonwinters.com including a surprising Canadian connection with the Winters family.
