AutismOne Announces Focus for Health Advocacy Training Track in Chicago, May 2018
 
Organizers unveil a full day of advocacy training and the innovative Cost of Autism app.
 
AutismOne, which holds the country’s largest and most comprehensive autism conference, today announced
the addition of a full day of advocacy training at the 16th annual event in May 2018. The advocacy track
complements the continuing medical education credit program (2.5 days), the chiropractic pediatric continuing
education credit program (3 days), and the general session lectures (5 days).
 
Robert J. Krakow, Esq., a former Manhattan prosecutor and a leading attorney representing people with vaccine
injuries, is spearheading the advocacy training program. Krakow brings his in-depth experience on the topics of
biomedical research in autism, vaccine injury, and the history of autism and vaccine-injury advocacy.
 
Mr. Krakow urged advocates to attend, stating: "The Focus for Health Advocacy Training Track is pivotal at
this point in the history of health advocacy. Efforts to curb consumer health rights have intensified. Consumers
need a coherent and coordinated national campaign to defend these rights, especially to counter the multi-state
effort to limit informed consent in vaccination and other health interventions. We thank Focus for Health for
their kind support of a program that will allow advocates from across our great nation to share their experiences
in the effort to preserve parental and personal health rights."
 
As part of the Focus for Health Advocacy Training Track, the new app named ”The Cost of Autism” will be
unveiled. "The Cost of Autism" merges science, population, and economic analyses to reveal the cost of autism
in every state and congressional district in America. This exploratory web app will provide state and district
level estimates about the costs of vaccine injury-induced autism and other conditions. Each analysis explores
costs associated with a potential mechanism of injury and the costs associated with the resulting management,
education, treatment, and care. This first-of-its-kind web app will be an indispensable tool for those citizens
hoping to explain the scope of the problem to policymakers.
 
The elegant Westin Lombard Yorktown Center provides a beautiful venue for the AutismOne 2018 Conference.
