    Default Mother of two speaks about participation in Wakefield study

    I don't have an opinion on this either way, just thought it was interesting. Please discuss!

    I'm going to try my hardest not to to get into a debate on the topic as I work in this field and I want to maintain a professional boundary.

    I wanted to say that I met Wakefield in the UK in 2010 and attended some of his lectures. This was for professional interest, not because I necessarily support his position.
    He was an extremely engaging and charismatic person. The research he continues to do, mainly in the US, is incredibly interesting (well, to a geek like me it is!) and it appears to be fairly scientifically robust.
    He is a very intriguing person and incredibly passionate and committed to the research he conducts.
