The United States Health Freedom Congress brings together over 40 health freedom organizations and their trusted leaders from across the nation and numerous other health freedom leaders and general participants.

The attendees will join and work together for three days, culminating in the Tuesday evening Health Freedom Awards Banquet and Keynote Speech with Brian Hooker, PhD, PE.

The 2015 United States Health Freedom Congress is the 10th national health freedom gathering hosted by NHFC, including: three National Health Freedom Conferences (2003, 2004, and 2005); the World Health Freedom Assembly (2006); the United States Health Freedom Assembly and Leadership Training (2007); the Reconvening of the US Health Freedom Assembly (2008) and the United States Health Freedom Congress (2012, 2013, and 2014). Similar to former Assemblies, the Congress will be facilitated by NHFC Moderators, Documentarians, and Parliamentarians. During the convened Congress, Voting Members will be seated at tables in the format of a large circle, each table with microphone, to facilitate productive discussions in a face-to-face manner.
