Activist Training with Former Merck Employee & Learn The Risk Founder

Wednesday, September 18, 2019, 8:00 PM

Join us for an afternoon of insight and empowerment with special guest Brandy Vaughan. Learn The Risk was founded by former pharmaceutical insider Brandy Vaughan, an ex-Merck sales executive who never meant to take on the world’s most powerful industry. When working in the pharma industry, Brandy sold Vioxx, a painkiller that was found to double the risk of stroke and heart attacks and was eventually taken off the market. “From that experience, I realized that just because something is on the market, doesn’t mean it’s safe,” explains Brandy. “And much of what we are told by the healthcare industry, just simply isn’t the truth.” For more information on Brandy: https://www.learntherisk.org/ This goal of this training is to empower Oregonians to be effective medical freedom activists in preparation for the upcoming legislative session. Considering the nature of this training, we encourage parents to make outside arrangements for their children. The training will be held at the charming Dye House at the Willamette Heritage Center, only blocks away from the Oregon State Capitol. Parking is free at the Heritage Center. Snacks and drinks will be available throughout the afternoon. See you there! ------------------- The same day as the training, Oregonians for Medical Freedom is holding a free informative orientation at the Oregon State Capitol, which will include going in small groups to meet legislators, aides, observing where the committee hearings are held, learn where and what amenities are available in the building, where legislative business is conducted and how to feel more comfortable at the Capitol. This will be held from 9:00am-11:00am. You can stay for all two hours or join in when you can. More information will be posted about this orientation as it gets closer to the date.
