Understanding Constitutional and Civil Rights as Applies to Personal Health Issues (Panel)

Travis Middleton leads a panel with Candyce Estave, Eric Durak, and Polly Tommey that will touch upon constitutional and civil rights with regard to vaccine-related issues, doctor-client relationships, and more. Also discussed will be the concept of RICO liability of public officials as well as privacy issues.

Candyce particularly will focus on the government's new "Conscience and Religious Freedom Division," within Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights. The new OCR CRF Online Complaint Filing System opens the door to brining agencies, states, hospitals, pharmacies, medical professionals, and schools into a better balance with the people's needs. According to OCR, "You can go online to file any complaint based on a violation of civil rights, conscience or religious freedom, or health information privacy here. Candyce will refine the information and give step-by-step instruction.
