By leaving a bequest to The Jacka Foundation of Natural Therapies you will be helping to develop the community of researchers, scholars, postgraduate students and fellows, and leaders in the field of naturopathy. Our work also builds relationships and collaborations with Universities and centres that specialise in natural medicine research. Government funding for this type of research is rare, even though over 60% of Australians use natural therapies in some form.
Your bequest will ultimately benefit the public by enabling evidence-based research in naturopathy and related therapies.
