Meryl Dorey has resigned as president of the AVN.
Her replacement is the splendidly eccentric Greg Beattie.
Here is the AVN’s announcement of the news:
Greg Beattie, long-time vaccine researcher and author of two books, the latest of
which guides readers through an in-depth analysis of the benefits of vaccination
with a focus on Australia, has stepped in to fill the role of President of the
Australian Vaccination Network, Inc. (AVN). This position was recently vacated by
Meryl Dorey, who resigned effective January 1, 2013.
The AVN has been weakened considerably over the past few years by skeptical activism in Australia. The group is anti-vaccination but claims to be pro choice. Just recently, they were ordered to change their name because it was misleading.
