In Memoriam, Dr. Peter Fisher
Address for correspondence
01 November 2018 (online)
Faced with the news about the death of Dr. Peter Fisher, the Brazilian Homeopathic Veterinary Association—AMVHB—would like to express its sincere feelings of sorrow with these few words about our admirable colleague:
The Last Act of Humility by Peter Fisher
Peter was an “icon” in the world of homeopathic research. Dedicated and extremely competent, he was the Director of Research at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, President of the Faculty of Homeopathy, Editor-in-Chief of Homeopathy, and, for 16 years, physician to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Because of these attributes, his presence in events about homeopathy around the world was always seen with a touch of “glamor.” Even when so admired, Peter never lost his gentle, caring, and humble way of interacting with people, whether they were Nobel Prize winners or undergraduates. This attitude always earned him well-deserved admiration. His death on August 15, 2018, shortly before his 68th birthday, was his last act of humility, when he was hit by a truck while using his bicycle—like so many other Londoners—to go to work. His huge contribution to homeopathy and his unassuming attitude must be a source of inspiration to young researchers and doctors, faced with the needs of contemporary society.
