AUTISMONE JOINS FORCES WITH FOCUS FOR HEALTH; INTERNATIONAL SPEAKING ROSTER PRESENTS IN CHICAGO, MAY 2015
AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference: Focus. Think. THRiiiVE.
The AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference will be held May 20-24, 2015, at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL.
Always fresh, bridging established solutions with trailblazing options, AutismOne: The Cutting-Edge Autism Conference® is delighted to join forces with Focus for Health, the leader of integrity in protecting children’s health from the harmful effects of environmental and other neurotoxins, to become the AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference.
In the true spirit of community building, the AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference will bring a diversity of speakers from the larger international health arena who are publishing important research and fighting the good fight to keep you and your family healthy.
Key speakers from the United States and countries abroad will inform you with presentations and panels on effects of toxins, while presenters from the enlightened arms of medicine and advocacy will broaden your perspective in innovative featured sessions.
In a must-see Saturday keynote address, Focus for Health Vice President Robert Reeves, JD, will present an up-to-the-minute progress report in the case of CDC malfeasance concerning vaccines as brought to light by Barry Segal’s advocacy organization and its scientific adviser Dr. Brian Hooker. The malfeasance story will forever change the face of autism advocacy and children’s health. Mr. Reeves will energize the conference with this compelling update. According to Mr. Reeves: “We have the impetus and the evidence to rally our community to act in concert to overcome misconduct and obstruction by the CDC and the FDA. The well-being of our nation’s children depends upon unified action. We are not only talking about autism, but also ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning disabilities. A disproportionate percentage of women of childbearing age have an overloaded body burden of mercury, and at least one-sixth of our children have a neurological disorder. The future of our nation’s global leadership and power is at stake. Our children and our seniors — think of Alzheimer’s disease — have been poisoned by mercury in vaccines and mercury/silver fillings, plus an excessive vaccine schedule. We cannot continue to lose our population at both ends! We are reaping from all of this – plus MS, ALS and Parkinson’s disease – a pathological harvest of neurological disorders.”
In an innovative Friday keynote, Sayer Ji, founder of the world’s most widely referenced, evidence-based natural health resource of its kind, GreenMedInfo.com; Kelly Brogan, MD, holistic women’s health psychiatrist and author holding multiple medical board certifications; and Louise Kuo Habakus, executive director of Fearless Parent, will widen the horizons of discussion about the current state of health and how inspired advocacy can make a positive impact prospectively.
Louise Kuo Habakus knows there’s a solid evidence base that supports what parents have been trying to tell everyone for years: “And there’s a new generation of fearless thought leaders who ‘get it.’ Fearless Parent™ is proud to bring to AutismOne a group of cutting-edge clinicians, researchers, and activists who are brilliant, collegial, professionally generous, and some of the bravest people you will ever meet. Most importantly, we work in the context of community. We know that our children can get better, many can recover, and the answers will not be delivered in a vacuum. Insights will emerge at the intersections of our experiences as parents and professionals by sharing our knowledge and telling our stories.“
Sayer Ji echoed Louise’s sentiments: “GreenMedInfo strives to bridge the gaps among generations of parents and sectors of society by delivering comprehensive and enlightened information on all topics pivotal to public health. AutismOne helps in this endeavor by providing an avant garde platform that respects the public’s right to the truth as it concerns their well-being.”
Kelly Brogan, MD, reinforces the hopes for this meeting: “Having seen the degradation of the health of mothers and mothers-to-be in our society and our
children, I’m excited about this platform in May 2015 as a turning point to help in the mission to stave off further grievous injury and provide restoration of health.”
The Thinking Moms’ Revolution (TMR) will be providing practical avenues to parents through the TMR track and the TMR Survival Boot Camp. Helen Conroy, board member of the Thinking Moms’ Revolution and executive director of Team TMR said: “The idea behind the first Thinking Moms’ Revolution book was sparked at the Unity & Community Mixer at AutismOne in 2011. After becoming good friends on Facebook, we all came together in person to meet and hug face-to-face. We learned about cutting-edge treatments during the day and enjoyed karaoke at night. AutismOne has been a critical part of many of our children’s improvements and recoveries. Nowhere is there a place as open and welcoming to parents ready to take charge of their children’s health. Since that first year, we’ve gone back every year and have been afforded many opportunities to grow as an organization. We are so thankful for the Arrangas’ dedication and relentless pursuit of cutting-edge treatments for our kids–all delivered to us in this amazing event.”
Dana Gorman, founder of THRiiiVE, which will be holding the THRiiiVE track added: “THRiiiVE providers are thrilled to get the word out through this ever-evolving and truly progressive conference. We know that families who know more can then THRiiiVE more–and with LESS investment of time, energy, and money!’
Teri Arranga, executive director of AutismOne, weighed in: “AutismOne is thrilled at this collaborative spirit of inspired advocacy that will create such a positive energy at the AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference. We are grateful for the insight and integrity of Focus for Health in supporting stellar work in the autism community and to the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute for assisting with tracks on the topics of aluminum toxicity and HPV vaccine safety, which will feature the most up-to-date research from scientists from the United States, Belgium, Italy, England, Canada, and France. We also welcome back Dr. Marco Ruggiero of Italy, who will present the latest groundbreaking research.”
