On Wednesday, March 26, the Westchester County (South) chapter of the Holistic Moms Network hosts a talk by Dr. Éva Vanamee on the controversial vaccine Gardasil. The free event takes place at 7:30 p.m. in the Free Reading Room at the Rye Public Library.

Vanamee, an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, will speak about her research on Gardasil, which indicates that the promotion of this vaccine as a breakthrough prevention for cervical cancer is not based on science. Vanamee will explain the inconsistencies that current research has observed in arguments presented by proponents of the vaccine. She’ll also present findings on conflicts of interest at the corporate and government levels, which may impact the safety and efficacy of Gardasil. 

According to the Holistic Moms Network, the number of Gardasil side effects that are being reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is increasing. The network brings together health conscious parents from throughout Westchester County with the goal of developing a thriving local community of holistic parents with a wide range of interests around sustainable living. Group members meet monthly to hear speakers on the subject of cutting edge health care or sustainable living.

The Rye Public Library is located at 1061 Boston Post Rd. in Rye, NY. To learn more about the Holistic Moms Network visit
