I have been nominated for the Complementary Medicines Australia (CMA) Board.
Worldwide, Australian complementary medicine products are highly regarded as safe, effective, and of the highest quality.

Increase the research and education of complementary medicines and health foods through supporting programs.
Support and enhance a robust complementary healthcare products industry through advocacy and promotion.
Support the ethical and responsible promotion and use of complementary medicines through education.
Strengthen the position of CMA internationally and enhance its reputation as a leader of complementary medicine.

Strengthen the position of complementary medicine in the media, by promoting CMA members being the first choice of expertise in their areas.
Enhance the support of manufacturers, importers, exporters, raw material suppliers, wholesalers, distributors, consultants, and retailers.
Enhance the positive interaction with Government and non-Government organisations of the benefits of complementary medicines on improving health and wellbeing and reducing the burden and impact of chronic disease on quality of life as well as the economy.
Enhance the relationships with industry partners, professional bodies, associations, and consumers through advocacy.
Provide stability, strength, and sustainability of the industry through advocacy, support, and promotion.
