Dr. Francis Vala is a physician, public speaker, social entrepreneur, Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia, and most importantly, an inquisitive life-time student. Born in Iran, he grew up in Greece, and is now residing in Canada. He does not believe in true geographic borders, and considers himself to be a ‘global’ citizen. Dreaming of a better world for future generations, his mission is to promote global education and awareness all across the world. His vision: “I am a global citizen, and we are all Earthians! I am not prepared to die without a contribution to the world—change for a better humanity, and a more peaceful planet!”
Francis is also the Author of “The Third Vision: The Science of Personal Transformation”, which introduces a new vision—a simple and comprehensive approach to understanding different aspects of life, and the complexities of this world, exemplified by a collection of extraordinary stories, and supported by a pile of science and evidence.
