Free Denver Conference on Quackery: Sept 21

Hello friends,

You are invited to attend a FREE one-day conference on health scams of all types in Colorado and around the country. The conference is hosted by:

The Colorado HIV/AIDS Treatment Taskforce (CHATT)
Colorado Dept. of Public Health and Environment
US Dept. of Health and Human Services
US Food and Drug Administration

Lead-off presenters are yours truly, Linda Rosa and Larry Sarner.

"Alternative medicine" and public-health menaces in Colorado -- such as Naturopathy and anti-fluoridation fearmongering -- are in our cross-hairs, as well as DSHEA, chiropractic, "Attachment Therapy" and others.

Attendees will get to make their own contributions in an open-discussion format with presenters and other attendees.

The conference is in the Pepsi Center in downtown Denver on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. The conference is free, but space is limited and on a first-come basis. A buffet lunch is being provided.

See the attached file (below) for details and a registration form. If you have any questions about it, you can always contact us.

This is a unique opportunity exchange ideas about quackery and meet others in Colorado concerned with this problem.

Please pass this invitation along to your Colorado friends.

Best regards,
Linda Rosa & Larry Sarner
