From our dear colleagues who brought you the magnificently well-reasoned book The Age of Autism: Mercury, Medicine, and a Man-Made Epidemic, authors Mark Blaxill and Dan Olmsted will be on hand for a reception highlighting autism advocacy in action: "Press the Flesh – Learn Big Truths."
Among other crucial goals, the advocacy track at the conference strives to capture, focus, and foster positive change based on the emerging science that vaccine components have played a role in the autism epidemic. Almost 50 percent of Americans now believe there is a connection, but those in positions of authority deny any possible link and refuse to undertake any investigation that could prove embarrassing to the status quo.
This regrettable position prevents the medical community from treating autism as a biomedical, environmentally-induced condition, underfunds research efforts, marginalizes vaccine safety, and jeopardizes the vaccine program.
Please join us as we meet in the Presidential Suite beginning at 7 pm for great conversation and refreshments.
And follow-up with us for these notable presentations:
- Friday, May 27, 1:30 pm: Kim Stagliano, Dan Olmsted, Mark Blaxill and contributors to the Age of Autism daily Web newspaper.
- Saturday, May 28, 4 pm: Mark Blaxill and Dan Olmsted's inspirational advocacy presentation in the Grand Ballroom.
We're looking forward to meeting you there!
