Michal Galazka was born in Scotland and emigrated to the United States with his family when he was 11 years old. He graduated from Harvard and founded a non-profit organization, the Hospice Education Institute which became an international organization, recognized and highly regarded around the world.
CSI-Americas Director Taylor Heyl says:
“Michal’s constant curiosity and thirst for knowledge earned him several advanced degrees and carried him around the globe many times, but it was his empathy for and understanding of people that really defined him. He spent significant time and effort in linking people together across cultures and around the world and in giving valuable information about health care that brought comfort and empowerment to dying people and their families”.
Michal Galazka meets Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal at the official opening of the Cicely Saunders Institute, London UK, May 2010.
