ANDREW GARDNER NEW SPEAKER
Little did Andrew Gardner know that a trip to a farm in Mexico would lead him to embark on another journey, one to discover a practical solution to the modern skin care dilemma, a solution consistent with the true principles of nutrition and health. This journey led to the discovery of what people used for skin care before the introduction of man-made chemicals as well as the science behind this traditional wisdom that had been almost completely forgotten. Due to the lack of any product on the market that fit the ideal for healthy and effective skin care, he was prompted to create a formula that he could use and share with others, a simple recipe for traditional nourishing and healing skin care, and in the process invented the term "tallow balm". He also founded the company Vintage Tradition (vintagetradition.com) where tallow balm can be obtained by those who prefer not to make their own.

The Organic Trade Association awarded Bob the 2010 Organic Leadership Award for his contributions in the “Growing Organic Agriculture” category and in 2013, he received the Rodale Institute’s Organic Pioneer Award. In 1986, Bob’s company Montana Flour & Grains introduced the natural food industry to an ancient Egyptian wheat, called khorasan (similar to durum wheat).

Through the trademark, Bob has been able to preserve an ancient grain and guarantee it is not genetically modified or altered. KAMUT brand khorasan wheat is grown under strict production guidelines and is exclusively grown organically.
On a mission to educate and farm eco-consciously, Bob is currently studying dryland vegetable production and a project designed to grow and process enough straight vegetable oil (SVO) on his farm to run all the farm’s tractors and combines. He also promotes food production systems based on producing high nutrition and quality rather than high yields. For Bob, experimenting with crops is the most enjoyable part of farming. He studied to be a plant scientist, his first love is growing plants and his whole farm is his laboratory.

PAM SCHOENFELD, RD
Pamela Schoenfeld is a registered dietitian-nutritionist whose practice in Raleigh, North Carolina, focuses on the nutritional needs of women and their families. She credits the information from the Weston A. Price Foundation for restoring her own health and giving her the energy to return to school to become a dietitian at the age of fifty. She firmly believes this was in part due to her resuming the consumption of liver and other high-vitamin A foods, foods she enjoyed while growing up. Currently a member of the board of directors, she has represented the Weston A. Price Foundation via written and oral commentary to the United States Government regarding the critical deficits in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the FDA food labeling requirements, both of which have the contributed to the simultaneous epidemics of malnutrition and obesity in the U.S. and across the globe.

The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey Smith was named the 2017 “Person of the Year” by Masters of Health Magazine. For more than two decades, his research has exposed how biotech companies mislead policy makers and the public, and put the health of society and environment at risk.
Mr. Smith’s feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette — The Gamble of Our Lives was awarded the 2012 Movie of the Year (Solari Report) and the Transformational Film of the Year (AwareGuide). Seen by millions world-wide, the film links genetically engineered food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, digestive disorders, and numerous other problems that have been on the rise in the U.S. population since genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced.
In 2018, he and Amy Hart released Secret Ingredients, a documentary that highlights numerous individuals and families that healed from serious conditions after switching to an organic diet.
Mr. Smith’s books include: Seeds of Deception, the world’s bestseller on GMOs; and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. They expertly demonstrate why the safety assessments by the FDA and regulators worldwide are based on outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our top food safety priority.
Mr. Smith has lectured in 45 countries, counseled leaders from every continent, and has been quoted by thousands of news outlets including: The New York Times, Washington Post, The Times (London), Associated Press, Reuters, LA Times, and Time Magazine. He regularly appears on influential radio and television programs, including the BBC, NPR, Fox News, Democracy Now, The Doctors, and the Dr. Oz Show.
He is the founding executive director of The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), a leading source of GMO health risk information for consumers, policy makers, and healthcare professionals. IRT’s educational programs are driving the tipping point of consumer rejection against GMOs, which is already starting to push genetically engineered ingredients out of the market in the U.S.
Mr. Smith resides in California, as well as Iowa— surrounded by genetically modified soybeans and corn.

JERRY TENNANT, MD
Jerry Tennant, MD, MD(H), PScD, was trained as an ophthalmologist/ophthalmic plastic surgeon. While doing research for the LASIK procedure, he inhaled viruses and developed encephalitis. Thus, he spent seven years in bed, sleeping about sixteen hours a day. When medicine could not help him, he began to look for additional answers only to realize that everything in the universe is first based in physics, not chemistry. He began to unravel the role of voltage in health and disease and over the past twenty years has developed a system that defines the battery packs, wiring system and electronic subsystems that make every cell in the body function. Every cell in the body is designed to run at -25 millivolts but requires -50 millivolts to make new cells when the old ones wear out or become injured. Chronic disease only occurs when you lose the ability to make new cells that work, and thus all chronic disease is characterized by lacking adequate voltage in that organ’s battery packs (acupuncture meridians). Dr. Tennant is believed by many to be the leading expert on the role of voltage in health and disease and will teach how to measure it and correct it so the body can repair itself.
