Kylie Sturgess has a Masters Degree in Education, majoring in Special Needs Education, including behaviour management.
She credits her childhood enthusiasm for the long-running consumer affairs program "The Investigators" on Australian television for her life-long interest in consumer education, media claims and how we are led to believe 'weird things'.
A former high-school teacher turned M.Ed thesis-writer, blogger at Podblack and educational researcher, she is currently working on a survey with Dr Martin Bridgstock on paranormal, pseudoscientific and conspiracy theory beliefs.
Michael Rosch received his Bachelors Degree from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and holds a Masters Degree in Media Studies from New School University.
He has no formal medical training or professional medical or scientific experience. He attests to having no investment, whether financial or otherwise, in any medical and/or pharmaceutical organizations or products that would constitute a conflict of interest.
He is simply a concerned citizen who is deeply troubled by the growing degree of myths and misconceptions about vaccines and autism being perpetuated in the popular media. And, although he does have a niece diagnosed with autism, he does in no way consider that relationship nor any other personal relationship to alone be sufficient experience for making a proper medical diagnosis.
Concordantly, he asks that you not simply trust him or simply trust the information provided on this website but to additionally seek the advice of trained medical professionals who support the conclusions of the medical consensus arrived at through a preponderance of evidence presented in proper peer-reviewed medical journals.
Other contributors include parents of special-needs children and, like Mr. Rosch, have other relatives "on the spectrum". None of the contributors, including Ms. Sturgess and Mr. Rosch, have any ties to the medical or pharmaceutical industry.
