Our May meeting supports Holistic Moms Network’s first guiding principle: Making informed and educated parenting decisions.

Parents and all individuals should be fully aware of their rights and truly informed of any harmful content, ingredients, or other potential risks prior to…
* Consenting to medical treatments, tests, examinations, etc.
* Consuming products, services and foods
* Authorizing or accepting terms and conditions (e.g. Apps) that may impact your health or privacy

We will discuss …
* What is Informed Consent and why you want to know about it
* Your Rights – Current laws that provide protections
* Pending Legislation – How your rights might change, Locally and Nationally
