Dr. Paul Offit , founding board member of the Autism Science Foundation , has been elected to the Institute of Medicine .

From the Autism Science Foundation Blog :

Autism Science Foundation Founding Board Member Dr. Paul Offit has been elected to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) at the Academy of Natural Sciences. For three decades, Dr. Offit has been a leading researcher in the fields of virology and immunology, and a well-respected and outspoken voice on the science, safety and value of childhood vaccinations. He is also one of the most public faces of the scientific consensus that vaccines have no association with autism.

The IOM is part of the National Academies:

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) is an independent, nonprofit organization that works outside of government to provide unbiased and authoritative advice to decision makers and the public.

Established in 1970, the IOM is the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences, which was chartered under President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Nearly 150 years later, the National Academy of Sciences has expanded into what is collectively known as the National Academies, which comprises the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the National Research Council, and the IOM.

Also elected this year is autism researcher Dr. Daniel Geshwind :

Daniel H. Geschwind, M.D., Ph.D., Gordon and Virginia MacDonald Distinguished Professor, departments of neurology, psychiatry, and human genetics, and director, program in neurogenetics and Center for Autism Research and Treatment, Semel Institute, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles

    This is great news! The credibillity of the IOM was already under fire thanks to the best selling book Evidence of Harm. There it's laid out just how corrupt they are. This is just going to intensify the spot-light. What a bunch of idiots. Serves them right.

    Um, what? The book by David "" Kirby?
  4. Sullivan:
    Penelope, let's synchronize watches. I'm in 2011. Evidence of Harm has been shown to not only be the speculative pseudo-journalism it was when it was published, it is now clearly wrong. By the way, take your use of "idiots" with you when you go.
