Here are the main conferences at which I have given formal lectures. The majority have been annual veterinary conferences, both for conventional and holistic audiences, but one was an interesting group known as the A4M- the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. This association, of which Dr. Joe Mercola is a member, focuses on the many ways in which we can extend and improve the quality of human life. Getting involved with them was a very natural thing for me to do. Some of the transcripts for these talks can be found right here on Dogtorj.com.

TV and Radio Appearances:
I recently attended the National Publicity Summit in New York City where I was able to meet with over 100 members of the media, including executives from TV, radio, magazines, and Internet radio. This was in preparation for a national media campaign that I am about to launch in order to get this vital information directly into the hands of the public. This developing area of DogtorJ.com will list my appearances as they are scheduled.

Here are a few of the forums on which I spend time reading and contributing. These can be a wealth of information and encouragement, as people share their personal findings and success stories. You can usually do a search for “dogtorj” to find my posts.

http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/ – BrainTalk Communities– Unfortunately, I was banned from this forum in Feb. 2007 after posting a thread asking for the forum’s help in aiding a newly diagnosed food intolerant woman in Iraq. The moderator (incorrectly) viewed my post as “Solicitation” and banned me from further contribution. This ban has never been lifted. It was one of the most frustrating experiences I have had in all of my years doing this, but what can you do? I miss the interaction with my friends on the epilepsy, MS, and many forums on which I wrote.
