Crete & Health

Ancient times

From Ancient times Crete has possessed a great tradition in Health Care, Medicine and Well Being. Not only for treatments concerning the Body but also the Mind and the Psyche.

Asclepius son of Apollo and god of Health whose symbol a snake on a stick remains the symbol of Medicine, had many disciples on Crete who cured ill people in the Asclepiads (today we would say private clinics).


We the people of Crete are proud to have on our island one of the most famous Schools of Medicine in Europe with such famous Faculty members as: Pr. Vardas, President of the EU Cardiology Society, Pr. Palikaris, President of the European Cataract Society & former Faculty Member of the Medical School of Zurich, Pr. Tosca, former Research Fellow of the Medical Schools of Lyon, Berlin, London, California, Pr. Plaitakis, former Professor of Neurology at the Mount Sinai NY Medical School & others.
