Perhaps the most important information families touched by autism will ever hear
Fast on the heels of Autism Awareness Month, author Marcia Hinds, Eric Gladen’s documentary Trace
Amounts, and Allison Folmar, JD, join over 150 speakers in the most comprehensive conference on
autism. The AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference will be held in Chicago May 20
to the 24
On Sunday, May 24, the conference presents "I Know You're In There: Is recovery
from autism possible?" The book I Know You’re In There: winning our war against
autism was written by Marcia Hinds, Ryan’s mom. He is now an engineer at a major
aerospace company.
Ryan Hinds does all the things the experts said could never happen. Anyone who
meets him would never know he was once severely affected. His story proves
there is hope for other children significantly impacted by an autism diagnostic label
and symptoms.
Saturday, May 23, the conference screens the renowned documentary Trace Amounts. During the past
20 years, the frequency of autism occurring in children has skyrocketed from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 68, and
the scientific community is no closer to determining a cause.
Trace Amounts is the true story of Eric Gladen’s painful journey through mercury poisoning that he
believes resulted from a thimerosal-loaded tetanus shot. His discoveries led him on a quest for the
scientific truth about the role of mercury poisoning in the autism epidemic. People have learned time
and again of the debilitating neurological and physical damage that mercury can cause.
Friday, May 22, the conference presents Allison Folmar, JD, with her session titled “Being Prepared for
the Legal Fight!” Allison Folmar is a civil rights attorney who passionately fought numerous charges
brought against her client, Michigan mother Maryanne Godboldo.
Godboldo refused to give up her daughter Ariana to State authorities when they attempted to force a
harmful anti-psychotic drug upon her child who exhibited autistic-like symptoms immediately after
vaccinations. The case garnered international attention as Folmar fought for Maryanne's right to choose
the course of medical treatment for her daughter, and fiercely challenged the State's medical
kidnapping of Ariana.
Folmar won a 10-month legal battle against the Michigan Attorney General and state prosecutors on the
sole premise that a parent has the absolute fundamental liberty interest and constitutional right to have
the final voice in choosing the course of medical treatment for his/her child.
Folmar will also join Dr. Brian Hooker at his Saturday, May 23 panel titled “Debunked!” Dr. Hooker will
discuss his efforts to reanalyze CDC datasets associated with the Destefano et al. 2004 (MMR-autism),
Thompson et al. 2007 (thimerosal-neurological deficits) and Price et al. 2010 (thimerosal-autism)
studies. In addition, he will discuss a culture of fear at the CDC that has led to suppression of science
showing a link between autism and vaccines/vaccine components.
The AutismOne/Focus for Health 2015 Conference will be held at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel (5300
N. River Road, Rosemont, IL 60018) from May 20-24. Register at, or call
