NVIC and NYK Asks for Your Help

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) founded by Barbara Loe Fisher and Kathi Williams has asked the chiropractic profession for our help.  The NVIC has announced their "Show Us the Vaccine Data Petition" program at the August 23, 2004, meeting of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), National Academies of Sciences in Washington, D.C..

The federally operated Vaccine Safety Datalink electronic database has collected information on vaccination and children's health in cooperation with large Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO's) for more than a decade. The CDC has conducted its own analysis of the data and published articles, most of which have denied a causal link between vaccines and chronic brain and immune system dysfunction like Autism. During the past two years, independent researchers were repeatedly denied access by CDC officials to the publicly funded Vaccine Safety Datalink for the purpose of replicating and validating the CDC's analysis of the data.  The question that must be asked is, if the data is non-disputable, why is it NOT open to the public for further independent scrutiny?  What are they trying to hide?

To help this situation we at Now You Know are asking all our readers to follow this link at the NVIC website, http://www.nvic.org/petition.htm, and fill out the online petition to add your name to those who are asking that these "public" records be made public.

Additionally, we at Now You Know are urging ALL Doctors of Chiropractic to join the NVIC and  BECOME AN NVIC MEMBER .  Please use the link we have provided to go to their website and join the NVIC.  Membership is very affordable.  This is an issue we believe in very strongly and the NVIC is fighting this battle with only the funds we give them in our membership dollars.  Bottom line is:
PLEASE JOIN THE NVIC.   You can visit their website at www.nvic.org.

 

Sid Williams Settles Suit with Life University

According to reports Dr. Sid Williams and Life University have settled their suits.  In what was described as a "marathon session" an agreement was reached on Monday August 30, 2004.  It was noted that this unsettled legal action with the founder may have represented a stumbling block for Life's upcoming accreditation proceedings with the CCE.

This agreement also paves the way for Dr. Sid to assist in fundraising for Life at this critical juncture.  Accordingly, Dr Sid appeared at the Georgia Council of Chiropractic annual convention on September 11, 2004 and made an impassioned plea from those present to step up and donate to Life University.

Life's remaining hurdle is to get re-accreditation with SACS, (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools).  Although there seems to be little in the way of academic issues, Life must show a balanced budget by the end of their fiscal year on September 30. 

Life University lost their CCE accreditation several years ago, but gained it back in a court action against the CCE.  As a result of the court action, Life must go through the CCE accreditation process again in order to keep the CCE accreditation they won in court.  Sources say that Life has corrected any areas of concern that would present a problem.  It is expected that Life will get their CCE status re-affirmed at the next CCE commission vote later this year.

 

Chiro-News Links

There is a lot of chiropractic news that makes the general media world-wide.  Not all the news is good, but it is worth knowing about.  To help keep you informed, Now You Know will be featuring this Chiro-News section in each edition of "The Information Age" email newsletter. This feature will provide the title and links to the various news items of interest to chiropractors. Check each month as we place the news relevant to our profession here in "The Information Age".  To see the articles, please click on the headline link below.

 

Why I Recommend Now You Know; by Dr. Cheryl Langley
