Featured Speakers at the 2o11 Biomedical Conference
Dr. Julie Buckley, MD – A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine and of the Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami Pediatric Residency Program, Dr. Buckley implemented an integrative/functional medicine approach into her pediatric practice after her daughter regressed into the world of autism at four years of age. An international speaker, she has written Healing Our Autistic Children, released in 2010, and is co-founder and President of the HEAL! (Healing Every Autistic Life!). She is also raising a family with the help of a wonderfully supportive family.
Dr. Wendy Edwards, MD – Dr. Edwards started her professional career as a nurse working at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. She completed her medical training at McMaster University in 1993 and returned to Sick Kids as a pediatric resident. In her final year of residency training she was chosen to be chief resident at the hospital. Dr. Edwards works as a consultant pediatrician in Chatham-Kent and her special interest in autism stems from the fact that her youngest son was diagnosed with this in 2003.
Dr. Sonya Doherty, ND – Dr. Doherty is a naturopathic doctor and Defeat Autism Now! practitioner specializing in biomedical treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and other developmental concerns. Dr. Doherty completed her naturopathic training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, ON, and has been a board certified ND since 2003.
