Two Important Events…

As my readers know there has been an effort to form alliances between the North American Health Freedom movement and the Autism world.   It is succeeding…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

Both the Long Beach Health Freedom Expo and AutismOne worked well together.  And now we are heading for the third, and fourth, collaborations – both in Chicago.

The Third Collaboration…

My friend attorney Diane Miller, from Minnesota, and leader in the National Health Freedom Coalition, picked up the ball and organized an all day Congress on Thursday June 14th, 2012, the day before the Chicago Health Freedom Expo begins.  The Congress has forty (40) Delegates, and eighty (80) Observers. I, Tim Bolen, am one of the Delegates.  I’ll show you the whole list below.  As you will see, we reached out, this time, to more, even beyond Autism.   Here is the description of the event:

2012 United States Health Freedom Congress to Convene on June 14
NHFC will host the 2012 United States Health Freedom Congress in Schaumburg, IL on June 14. This will be the 7th national health freedom gathering hosted by NHFC. Similar to former assemblies, the Congress will be facilitated by NHFC Moderators, Documentarians, and Parliamentarians. The Congress is being reconvened for one day on the same weekend as the Chicago Health Freedom Expo 2012.

Congress Purpose

  • To bring together key leaders in the United States Health Freedom movement;
  • To experience an egalitarian gathering of autonomous and diverse leaders, where leaders communicate face to face in a large round (Congress-style format);
  • To increase collaboration and inspire each other to unity and solidarity;
  • To identify top health freedom issues and topics that are impacting health freedom;
  • To find areas of common ground and pass resolutions;
  • To work together to identify strategies for enhanced health freedom; and
  • To celebrate the health freedom movement and give awards honoring successful leaders. Read More.

The Fourth Collaboration...

I’ll be speaking at the Health Freedom Expo in Chicago next week – on Saturday at 5:00PM.  It will, once again, be a panel discussion, this time, on Health and Vaccine Politics.  The lecture description says:

“Tim Bolen (moderator) is joined by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Dr. Mark and David Geier in this rousing panel looking at the politics of health care, vaccine policy making and media matters.”

The Autism issue is complicated, but the US government, via the Vaccine Court, broke the issue down into two arguments – MMR and Mercury damage.  I’ll have the leaders of both of those arguments there in that panel.

The entire event, like Long Beach, is a collaboration.  There is, in addition to the regular schedule of stars, an entire Autism track of speakers.  And, like Long Beach, there will be strategy meetings all weekend.

Check out the Speaker Schedule.
