The rest of the weekend is packed with presentations led by fascinating speakers including Dr. Dawn Ewing, a Houston naturopathic practitioner and author of Let the Tooth Be Known, which examines the links between oral and systemic health; and Kaayla Daniel, PhD who is also known as the “The Naughty Nutritionist” because of her ability to outrageously and humorously debunk nutritional myths ; and Chris Masterjohn, PhD, the creator of Cholesterol-and-Health.com, who demonstrates that cholesterol is not harmful but rather critical to cognitive learning and memory.

Full or one-day registrations are available; the registration fee includes admission to the lectures and exhibit hall and a delicious, nutritious lunch each day. In addition, Saturday evening’s events are open to the public.  All are welcome to purchase tickets to Saturday evening’s dinner and attend a free film screening, with free-will donations benefitting the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit organization committed to protecting family farms and artisan food producers from unlawful government interference in the sale of raw milk and other artisan farm foods.
