Dr. Andrew Wakefield is the keynote speaker for the pediatrics program which will focus on autism, one of the most challenging conditions facing health professionals, parents and children today.   Dr. Wakefield, who serves as Executive Director of  “Thoughtful House”, a  treatment center for children with autism, will present his findings and those of his colleagues showing the connection between vaccines and autism. It was in 1996 that Dr. Wakefield first suspected that the measles vaccines may have played a role in a new syndrome in children that consisted of a regressive developmental disorder (usually autism) in previously normal children. Since then his group have performed a detailed investigation of several hundred children with this disorder and believe that the discoveries may have far-reaching implications for understanding both the cause and mechanism of some childhood developmental disorders.   In 1998 he and his colleagues at the Royal Free Hospital in London reported a novel inflammatory bowel disease in children with developmental disorders such as autism. 

Dr. Wakefield is involved in many scientific investigations centering on the immunologic, metabolic and pathologic changes occurring in inflammatory bowel diseases such as autistic enterocolitis, links between intestinal diseases and neurologic injury in children, and the possible relationships of these conditions to childhood vaccines. He has published more than 135 original scientific papers, book chapters and invited scientific commentaries.  He is passionate about finding answers because he believes that “autism is…a world emergency and we need to start treating it as such.”

There are many other excellent speakers and topics on the program, from pediatrics to geriatrics, philosophy to science and technique. There will also be 8 research paper presentations.
