Advocacy at Work in West Virginia

Dr. Alvin Moss will outline a number of different strategies being utilized in West Virginia in efforts toward parental rights and expanded medical and religious exemption rights. He will facilitate an interactive dialogue with the audience centered on the problems with American healthcare that have led to vaccine mandates and the solutions that will result in a rescinding of those mandates. Proposed solutions include a grassroots assertion of patients’ rights; an exposure of how conflicts of interest are driving the universal vaccination agenda of the pharmaceutical industry and cooperating healthcare organizations; and a demand for real science to ground vaccine policy. The goal is a better understanding of the issues on the part of all participants and the beginning of an approach to the overturning of vaccine mandates.
