Gerald Pollack received his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. He then joined the University of Washington faculty and is now a professor of Bioengineering. He is also Founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal, WATER, convener of the Annual Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water, and Executive Director of the Institute for Venture Science. His interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles, and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication. His 2001 book, Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and his newest book, The Fourth Phase of Water: Beyond Solid, Liquid, and Vapor won that Society’s “Distinguished Award,” their highest distinction. The latter book went on to receive the World Summit Excellence Award. Pollack received an honorary doctorate in 2002 from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and a foreign member and Academician of the Srpska Academy. He received the Biomedical Engineering Society’s Distinguished Lecturer Award in 2002. In 2008, his colleagues chose him as the recipient of his university’s highest annual distinction: the UW Faculty Lecturer Award. Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He received an NIH Director’s Transformative R01 Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems, and in 2014 he received the Scientific Excellence Award from the World Academy of Neural Therapy, as well as the Society for Scientific Exploration’s Dinsdale Prize. In 2015, he won the Brandlaureate Award, previously bestowed on notables such as Nelson Mandela, Hillary Clinton, and Steve Jobs.

2016 Conference
      Dr. Paul Connett is a graduate of Cambridge University and holds a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College. From 1983 -2006 he taught chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY where he specialized in Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology. He retired in May 2006 with the rank of full professor. Paul Connett has researched the literature on fluoride’s toxicity and the fluoridation debate for 20 years. He helped found the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) see http://www.fluorideACTION.net . He has given presentations on the dangers of fluoridation in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, the UK and the US. This included an invited presentation in 2003 to the US National Research Council, which published a landmark review of fluoride’s toxicity in 2006. In 2010, with two other authors, he published the book, The Case Against Fluoride (Chelsea Green), which contains 80 pages of citations to the scientific literature. As of March 2016, there has yet to be a scientifically referenced response to this book. Despite being challenged many times to do so, very few of those championing fluoridation in government agencies and professional bodies, have been prepared to publicly debate Professor Connett on fluoridation. In addition to his work on fluoride Paul Connett has worked on waste management. He opposes incineration and promotes zero waste. He has co-authored six papers on dioxin and co-produced and edited over 40 videotapes on waste management. Since 1985 the waste issue has taken him to 64 countries, where he has given over 2500 pro bono presentations to communities. In 2012 Paul gave two presentations on Zero Waste before the UN Commission on Sustainability in NYC. Paul has summarized his work on waste in a book published in 2013, The Zero Waste Solution: Untrashing the Planet One Community at a Time (Chelsea Green, 2013). Ralph Nader said of Paul, “He is the only person I know who can make waste interesting!”   To learn more, visit www.FluorideACTION.net

                                    A typical American growing up in the New Jersey/New York area, Brian likes to joke that he was a pioneer in the field of obesity—he was fat even before many Americans were fat! Raised in an Irish household on the standard American diet of meat, processed foods and sugary sodas, he was unfit and gasping for air every few steps. When he was 20 years old, he was dating a girl whose best friend’s boyfriend was 30—and a vegetarian. Despite the fact he had been more or less educated by his family that the body would die without animal-based foods, the lure of an influential peer inspired him to give up meat in one fell swoop. For the first year and a half, he kept his vegetarian diet a secret from his family. Yet after losing 120 pounds and experiencing the difference in his health, he came out of the proverbial closet (much to his family’s dismay!) and became a complete vegan three years later.   A natural performer, Brian had worked his way through college as a musician. Many friends, including one who shared his interest in nutrition after healing herself from cancer through diet, offered feedback that he was born to teach. With his degree in biochemistry in hand and his interest in nutrition sealed, Brian began doing just that.   It was during this time he was living in Southern Oregon where temperatures are hot, dry and sunny from May through September. His body naturally gravitated towards raw foods and, after a few months, he remembered the book “Be Your Own Doctor” by Ann Wigmore. He dug it out, read it again, and realized he had essentially become a raw vegan by default. With the intention of returning to Oregon to open a health institute, Brian moved to Maine for a final taste of the East Coast. While there, he decided to go down to Boston to visit Ann Wigmore at the Hippocrates Health Institute. As his friend had years prior, Ann saw Brian’s natural talent to communicate this lifestyle to people in a relatable way, and she convinced him to move to Boston and work with her.   On behalf of Hippocrates, Brian soon went to Europe and spent three years re-educating Europeans about the raw food movement that had begun on their continent. In 1978, he spent a year in Denmark as Director of the Humlegaarden Institute that had been founded by the famous Danish raw-food pioneer Dr. Kristine Nolfi in the 1940s. Upon his return to the U.S. in 1980, Brian assumed the title of Director of Hippocrates Health Institute and, in 1987, he moved the Institute to Florida.   Since that time, he has directed the Institute’s growth and development, as well as facilitated the implementation of progressive natural health treatments and programs. Brian’s progressive ideas on natural health, coupled with his vast theoretical and practical science experience, have provided him with the opportunity to conduct countless seminars, lectures and educational programs. He has traveled to more than 25 countries motivating the public to take action to improve their lives. Most recently, he was commissioned by government-supported organizations to establish, organize and direct health programs in Denmark, Switzerland, Greece and India.   Brian has also written numerous books in which he explores the various aspects of health, spirituality and natural healing. His best-selling book, “Living Foods for Optimum Health,” has been acclaimed by Marilyn Diamond, co-author of the book “Fit for Life,” as “an important and eminently readable book for the new era of self-care,” and by Coretta Scott King as a “landmark guide to the essentials of healthy living.”

           Anna grew up in a Swedish family that consumed a traditional diet of meat and carbohydrates. But at the age of 15, her entire family became vegetarian and Anna’s interest in the intersection of health and nutrition began. Similar to Brian’s experience with his mentor Ann Wigmore, a Danish woman by the name of Alma Nissen changed Anna’s course. In 1974, Alma was so incapacitated by arthritis that she was practically bedridden. Her hands and fingers were stiff and in constant pain, and she could not bend, walk or even turn over by herself in bed. Unwilling to accept her lot as a bedridden invalid, she changed her diet and normal routine. She began drinking fresh vegetable juices and herbal teas and taking heat treatments and hydro baths all with the goal of cleansing her intestine. She began to feel better and, after just a few months, was completely cured. Wanting to share what she had learned, she transformed her seven-room apartment in Copenhagen into an arthritis clinic that attracted patients on stretchers, on crutches, and in wheelchairs. After four to eight weeks on Nissen’s simple regime, these patients left the clinic on their own two feet. Word spread, and a wealthy Swedish benefactor offered the Brandal estate in Stockholm for her use as a rheumatic clinic. With a doctorate in nutrition from Denmark University, Anna became Director of the Brandal Clinic in her twenties, while also working towards her nursing degree.   In 1978, Ann Wigmore and Brian Clement were invited to speak at a conference in Sweden, where Brian and Anna first met. For Brian, it was love at first sight. Two years later, Anna came to Boston to experience the Hippocrates program for herself. A year following, she asked Brian if she could come work at Hippocrates and the rest is history. To Hippocrates, Anna brought a refreshing European approach to healing, and her maternal ways rounded out the edges of Brian’s straightforward approach. She speaks seven languages and travels the world with Brian to lecture on the topics of natural health methods in a family and pediatric care.

      Deborah Koons Garcia has called Northern California home for over thirty years, with her production company based in Mill Valley, CA. She has made fiction, educational and documentary films. For the last fifteen years, she has focused primarily on films about agriculture and the food system. Ms. Garcia directed the groundbreaking film, The Future of Food, which premiered at Film Forum in New York City. The Future of Food (2004) examines the alarming issues surrounding the rapidly increasing corporate domination of our food supply. It is the first major film to cover the history and technology of genetic engineering and the complex implications of releasing such crops into the food environment and food supply. The Future of Food helped jumpstart what is now called the food movement and the continues to play widely all over the world. Symphony of the Soil (2013) was designated a Critics’ Pick by the New York Times and was shown at the United Nations in New York City on World Soil Day which launched the UN International Year of the Soils. Symphony of the Soil is being used in more than 350 educational institutions around the world and was screened on Captial Hill for a special Congressional Briefing on Soil Health and its ability to mitigate Climate Change. Symphony of the Soil continues to be screened in theaters and at film, food and farming festivals and conferences and at thousands of community-organized screenings. A broadcast version of Symphony of the Soil will air on PBS starting Spring 2016.

      Jeff Lowenfels is the longest running garden columnist in North America, a noted author, a huge proponent of organics and, without a question, the most entertaining horticultural speaker on the circuit. He is also the author of two award-winning, best-selling books on organic growing, farming, and gardening. His third book will be published in late 2016. “Teaming With Microbes: The Organic Gardener’s Guide to the Soil Food Web,” was reviewed as “the most important new gardening book in 25 years and maybe even ever.” As evidence, it has been translated into 7 languages and is now a standard text in freshman Ag courses thought the land. Its explanation of the soil food web has benefited all those who grow plants from cannabis growers to wheat farmers and changed the way many garden. Jeff’s second book, “Teaming with Nutrients: The Organic Gardener’s Guide to Optimizing Plant Nutrition,” took the nutrients delivered by the soil food web, into the plant, literally. It’s an eye-opening journey most growers have never taken, full of useful information on being a better grower. A third book, “Teaming With Fungi: The Organic Gardener’s Guide to Mycorrhizae” will be published in 2016. (It is a killer, too!). This makes a soil trilogy, earning Jeff a new moniker “Lord of the Roots.” O.K. he can write, but can Jeff give a good lecture? You bet he can. Just ask anyone (literally) who has been in one of his audiences (references are available!). His extremely entertaining talks have a special way of educating audiences and as a result, he has converted tens of thousands of growers, gardeners and farmers to the organic way at venues (large and small) throughout North and South America (and Great Britain). This is a promise: No one goes away from a Lowenfels talk disappointed or unchanged. Guaranteed!   To learn more, visit www.amazon.com/Jeff-Lowenfels/e/B001JS55S4/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1463348741&sr=1-2-ent
