Your Weekly Dose Of Information – May 20, 2016

Checking In

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve sent The Weekly Dose Of Information. The group has been busy working behind the scenes and wanted to share with you what we have been up to!

Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe

We wrote about this in our March 25th Weekly Dose Of Information and as part of our efforts to bring Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe to RI we created the Facebook community page “Bring Vaxxed to Rhode Island”. The more interest we have from the community the better chance we have of bringing the screening to RI. Please like and share the page.

1st Annual Global HPV Vaccine Advocacy Symposium at The Autism One Conference

We are so excited and a little jealous that our Chairwoman Deb O’Leary is heading to the Autism One Conference next week.  Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @VaccineChoiceRI for up to date tweets from Deb!

This year, the Autism One Conference will feature the First Annual Global HPV Vaccine Advocacy Symposium on May 27, 2016 in Chicago. There will be an international panel of experts, including Dr. Sin Hang Lee, speaking on Scientific, Recovery and Advocacy in regards to the HPV vaccine. There will also be seminar on the use of Cannabis to help children with seizures, chronic pain and Autism. This will be presented by Dr. Judy Mikovics. Google her. She has an amazing story.
