Professor Anastasios Dontas and his family have been strong supporters of the Conference since its inception. Now retired, he was one of Greece's most eminent physicians. As an academic and clinical practitioner in both Greece and the USA with over fifty years of experience, he has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the medical profession. He was the Founder and Director of the Centre for Studies of Age Related Change in Athens and has been actively involved with the Conference since its inception; he is the official Conference Patron in Greece.
The Medical fellowship named in his honour is in recognition of his contribution to the professional development and understanding between professional groups and his commitment to cultural understanding between nations.
