Next Chapter Meeting June 12, 2019:

Informed Consent, Vaccine Requirements & Colorado Law

with Theresa Wrangham of NVIC




Who: Theresa Wrangham, Executive Director of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)

As NVIC's executive director since 2010, Theresa monitors federal advisory committee activities related to vaccine policy-making and is a consumer reviewer for systematic reviews and their protocols undertaken by the Cochrane Collaboration. She has participated in vaccine related public engagement processes funded by the Centers for Disease Control and the State of Colorado. She currently represents NVIC in the CDC's Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) Revisions process.

Theresa became a parent advocate due to her daughter Deanna’s life-threatening asthma, as well as her daughter Rachel’s diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder. As a former AMTA massage therapist and Usui Reiki Master, she views health holistically and brings an experienced parent's perspective on raising healthy children. 

What: In the 2019 Colorado legislative session, legislation was introduced in a third attempt to limit rights and privacy relating to vaccine choices made by families. Due to the continued introduction of vaccine related legislation, we could all use an update on the issue of informed consent to vaccination. Whether you fully vaccinate, alternatively vaccinate, or choose not to vaccinate, this presentation will provide valuable information and take-aways on vaccine requirements and your rights and responsibilities.

The following topics will be covered with plenty of time for a Q & A after the presentation:

  • What the informed consent ethic applies to vaccination;
  • What the science says about vaccine injuries and risks;
  • Overview of federal law and vaccine injury compensation;
  • Federal and state vaccine landscape overview;
  • Colorado vaccine requirements, registry, exemptions and legislative history;
  • Advocacy tools and how to be an effective advocate.

When: Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Where: Community Center, Provincetowne Housing,

626 Quaking Aspen Drive, Fort Collins

***Please park on Autumn Ridge Drive, NOT in the community center parking lot or in front of any of the apartments.***

This is a FREE event, open to all in the community! 
You do not have to be a member of our chapter to attend. All are welcome, including children. We do not provide childcare, but there is an outdoor playground as well as a separate indoor room that is viewable from the meeting room where children can play quietly. We suggest that parents take turns watching their children and bring toys, books, etc. for their children to use.


Four Healthy People

The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston A. Price. Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve excellent physical form and health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats. The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism.
