Malnutrition in Jamaica & Zaire, secondary malnutrition in cystic fibrosis and cerebral palsy in Canada)
• Survey studies of malnutrition in Jamaica, Zaire and Burundi.

and to develop the necessary curriculum to support this objective. In the developing world to assist with the development of appropriate training programs and practical treatment schemes which will ultimately eliminate childhood protein-energy malnutrition.
• To help to relate belief and practice so that the wisdom contained in the ancient religions
maintains its influence in medicine and the limitations of determinism are understood.
• To be an advocate for those who are unable to plead their own case, particularly the
disabled and the children of the developing world.
