Friday, August 15 is the last day to take advantage of the special rates at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Crystal City, Virginia for the upcoming 5th Citizens Conference on Fluoride from September 6-8. After tomorrow you will not have the guaranteed rate of $120 per room (single or double occupancy), with the cost of two people sharing at $60. If you book after tomorrow you also won’t be able to cancel your reservation for free if necessary, and you won’t have access to free WiFi in your room. The hotel offers a free shuttle to and from Reagan Washington Airport, as well as a free shuttle to the metro for all guests.
To book these rooms at the special rate (which includes free WiFi and free cancellation) you can either:
Phone in reservation, 1-888-421-1442 (mention FLUORIDE Conference). Please confirm that you will receive the WiFi and ask what their policy is if you have to cancel your reservation.
If you missed Sunday’s International Fluoride Free Teleconference call featuring many experts–including Dr. Paul Connett, Dr. Bill Osmunson, Dr. Bill Hirzy, and Dr. Joe Mercola—answering questions and offering a preview of the upcoming 5th Citizens Conference on Fluoride, than click on the link below to download the audio and listen for free:
If you have registered for the conference, or plan on attending, please make sure to schedule an appointment with your members of Congress for lobby day, which will be Monday, September 8. You can find your Representative and Senators’ contact information by clicking here. Call their DC offices and say that you are a constituent and will be in Washington, D.C. on September 8 and would like an opportunity to meet with the Representative/Senator if possible, as well as meet with the staff member in charge of health policy. Ideally they will offer you at least a 20-minute time slot with the staffer and a photo opportunity with your elected official. If the health policy staffer isn’t available, you can also ask to meet the education policy staffer. If they ask what you would like to meet about, don’t be afraid to tell them water fluoridation, but make sure they understand that as a constituent this issue is very important to you and ought to be important to the elected official.
Please don’t delay making your appointments. Officials and their staff are busy and will just be returning back from summer break, so please make your appointment as soon as possible.
