L-R Front: Terri Albert, Chair; Judy Jacka, Founder; Liza Oates, Public Officer
L-R Rear: Sue Evans, Vice-Chair; Bob McKay, Treasurer; Pauline McCabe, Secretary.
On behalf of the Directors, it is with much sadness that I announce the resignation of our Founder, Judith Mary Jacka, from the Board of the Jacka Foundation of Natural Therapies. Judy was Vice-Chair from the inception of the Foundation in 2010 and has now chosen to resign from the Board to take a well-earned break and enter retirement.
It is impossible in this announcement to encapsulate the magnitude of almost 60 years of Judy’s commitment to establishing and advancing formal educational courses and qualifications in naturopathy, her solid commitment to research and writing, her renowned clinical practice, and her well known participation in the battle to enable the positive regulatory system we now enjoy for natural medicines in Australia.
