On Tuesday January 26th, 2021, The Ottawa County Patriots will host an informational forum on:


 The facts about covid-19 & what you can do to keep your family safe and maintain good health


The meeting will be held from 6:45-9 p.m. at the Lighthouse Baptist Church on 501 East 24th St. Holland, MI 49423.  The doors will be open at 6:30 p.m.

 There is no cost and this meeting is open to the public.



  • Scientific fact based research and medical information about the Covid-19 virus
  • The truth about different treatments and their effectiveness
  • A review of the current “vaccines” available or in the process of approvals
  • Practical tips on what you can do to take control of your health
  • A review of reliable resources to get information and help in dealing with the Covid-19 virus.
  • Separating fact from fiction about the virus & exposing fake news & political misinformation

She has received numerous awards for her work as a researcher and educator. She is a consultant, educator, speaker and author on issues of Medical Freedom and brings a wealth of knowledge on how genetic and epigenetic factors may predispose certain populations to disease.

Maija HahnMs. Hahn is the Westside Regional Director Michigan For Vaccine Choice. She also has been a speech and Language Pathologist/Autism Specialist for over 25 years.  She is a highly regarded educator on autism, vaccines and pediatric health issues.

Allison Lucas— Allison is an experienced health law attorney, published legal author, and knowledgeable researcher. Before attending law school, she worked in hospital laboratories and operating rooms in some of the country's largest level I trauma hospitals. Allison has worked at the National Institutes of Health, the nation’s leading medical research agency. As an attorney, Allison has considerable experience working for state and national health-related nonprofit organizations.

Dr. Michael Redmond---Dr. Redmond is a graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School. He completed an Internal Medicine internship followed by a residency in Dermatology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Dr. Redmond is a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. From 1981 to 2018 he was in private practice in Livonia, Michigan. He now lives in Charlotte, NC and belongs to the NC Medical Society and the NC Dermatology Association.

Dr. Christina Parks received her Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Michigan in 1999. She did her graduate research in the field of cytokine signaling. Cytokines are the chemicals that the immune system uses to communicate, thus Dr. Parks brings a wealth of knowledge about the molecular mechanisms by which vaccines may be causing injury to vulnerable immune systems.

Dr. Parks has been in the spotlight recently for her outspoken resistance to the “racial bias” narrative being pushed by Michigan’s governor Whitmer and her Executive Branch. Instead she advocates for doctors to focus on known epigenetic differences in the African American population that are causing them to be more vulnerable to COVID-19 and for doctors to treat patients accordingly. Dr. Parks is passionate advocate for scientific and medical freedom. She has lambasted the media for their concerted misinformation campaign regarding hydroxychloroquine and its use to prevent and treat COVID-19, as well of for their silencing of the doctors and scientists who have dared to tell the truth. Dr. Parks has been closely following the science around the world on the origin of the SARS CoV-2 as well as on the development of the fast-tracked SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.

  • I worked in the laboratories of Jessica Schwartz and Christin Carter-Su. These labs identified the signaling molecules which mediate cytokine-induced changes in gene expression. Using Growth Hormone (GH) as a putative cytokine, they were one of the first labs to show that cytokines activate JAK family kinases and helped delineate the JAK-Stat pathway for cytokine receptors, the primary signaling pathway for more than 25 ligands. I personally worked to identify the downstream kinases that were responsible for Elk-1-mediated activation of the genes c-fos, egr-1, and jun B in response to GH. I also showed that C/EBP-α is upregulated in fibroblasts differentiating into adipocytes in response to GH.
