Fearless Keynote -- The V Word: New thinking on an old practice

Educated parents are deconstructing vaccine orthodoxy and finding that the science doesn't just come up short. In many cases, it doesn't come up at all.

Let's take a deep dive into the facts, clinical practice, the science, and the options for parents.
