Barbara Loe Fisher, president of the National Vaccine Information Center, will be the keynote speaker on September 27 at the Health Freedom Awards Banquet at Hamline University. The event is part of a two-day summit in which 40 health and freedom-conscious organizations gather in St. Paul to discuss state and national issues surrounding health freedom.
The public also is invited to the National Health Freedom Summit, which will focus on the health freedom movement and top issues facing health freedom today. Some of the issues discussed last year were GMO labeling, forced or coerced vaccinations, and freedom to practice the healing arts. This year’s conference theme is “Stories of Freedom, Stories of Courage,” featuring inspired stories of people who have stood up to protect human rights to make choices surrounding health. The event is hosted by the National Health Freedom Coalition, a non-profit based in Minnesota.
“We all want to protect the right of people to have what they need to be well, and that sometimes means fighting for our right to choose, our right to have accurate information, our right to decline treatments, or to avoid toxic substances,” says Diane Miller, JD, a key organizer of the summit.
For more than three decades, Barbara Loe Fisher has led a national, grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in the public health system. Fisher has been quoted in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, USA Today, Time, and Newsweek. She has appeared on NBC’s “The Today Show,” as well as on many other networks. She has researched, analyzed and publicly articulated the major issues involving the science, policy, law, ethics and politics of vaccination to become one of the world’s leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on the subject.
