The Quinism Foundation Has Relocated to the Border City of Port Huron, Michigan

The Quinism Foundation is proud to announce that we have relocated to the beautiful border city of Port Huron, Michigan. Located where Lake Huron flows into the St. Clair River – and directly across the Blue Water Bridge from Sarnia, Ontario – we are now only a short 3-4 hour drive from Toronto and only an hour’s drive from the Detroit Metro Airport.
Port Huron is the gateway to the Michigan Thumb Coast and home to the Blue Water Convention Center. We are very excited at the affordable and accessible opportunites this relocation promises, and are looking forward to welcoming you to future events in the area.

Six Weeks Left – Make Plans Now to Attend our Final Meeting in White River Junction, Vermont – April 29th to 30th, 2024

Now that our relocation to Michigan is complete, please join us in bidding farewell to our former home in Vermont, as we hold our final Annual Meeting in wonderful downtown White River Junction.


Our final meeting in Vermont will be held Monday, April 29th 9 am to 4 pm, and Tuesday, April 30th, 9 am to 12 pm, in the Vermont Room of the historic Hotel Coolidge, and will feature a variety of educational sessions and open discussions, as well as complimentary coffee, light snacks, and other refreshments.We are pleased to offer free registration to all of our guests on a first-come, first-served basis, so email us to register now to ensure availability.

The village of White River Junction is located at the intersection of interstates 89 and 91, on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire, and is a two-hour drive or less from Boston Logan International in Boston, MAIf flying, we strongly recommend flying into this airport and renting a vehicle to drive to White River Junction, rather than flying into neighboring Lebanon, NH.

Affordable accommodations are available at the downtown meeting location, the Hotel CoolidgeBook now as accommodations at this historic hotel are limited. For those seeking more modern accommodations, a variety of national chains are available about a mile away from the downtown village center.

Regardless of where you are staying, please note that White River Junction is in a rural location, and food options within walking distance are limited, so we recommend planning to drive a short distance for your meals. Ride-sharing and taxis are generally not available in the White River Junction area.

Family members are welcome to attend the conference with registration, but for those who wish to sightsee during the meeting, or for those who wish to add a brief vacation to their journey, the White River Junction area has plenty of attractions, including VINS, the Quechee Gorge, and the Montshire Museum of Science.

Questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. We look forward to welcoming back prior attendees and welcoming new attendees as we wish Vermont a fond final farewell.

The Late Diane Feinstein, 1933 – 2023

Since publication of our last newsletter, The Quinism Foundation has been saddened to learn of the passing of the late Diane Feinstein, long-standing Senator for the State of California.

The Quinism Foundation considers Senator Feinstein’s efforts instrumental in raising awareness within Congress of the dangers of mefloquine, and successfully advocating for changes to the Department of Defense’s prior policy of widespread use of the drug.
