March 18, 2023 | Florida: Collier County Rejects CDC and NIH Funding | In a big victory, health freedom advocates in Florida got together to educate their county commissioners and influence an important public health policy.

Medical Freedom Subcommittee member Beth Sherman said, “We don’t want any involvement from the government or the CDC. They’re not an elected body and I don’t think the citizens of the county should have to follow any directives that they request.”
Getting involved at the local level is important and can make a big difference in influencing policies.
