Dr. Ken Walker (aka Dr. Gifford-Jones) is a graduate of the University of Toronto and The Harvard Medical School. He trained in general surgery at the University of Rochester and McGill University and in gynecology at Harvard.

He has been a general practitioner, ship’s surgeon and hotel doctor. His weekly medical column is published by 80 newspapers in Canada and the U.S. and in the international newspaper The Epoch Times.

Many years ago he was successful in a fight to legalize heroin to help ease the pain of terminal cancer patients. His Foundation at that time donated $500,000 to establish the Gifford-Jones Professorship in Pain Control and Palliative Care at the University of Toronto Medical School.
