A Health Expo for All Ages

The Trinity Health Freedom Expo has a longstanding history grounded in the pursuit of health freedom for all. It was founded in 2005 by Dr. Wendell Whitman, who believed that everyone should have “the right to know and the freedom to choose” what is best regarding their health. His vision for the Expo was to connect people and provide public education rooted in community values.
Whitman was a visionary and proponent of natural health. He founded Trinity School of Natural Health in 1991 after being inspired by his experience with natural healthcare. Combining his appreciation for holistic health, a passion for education, and a patriotic spirit, Whitman set out on a mission to transform the world. He sought to empower individuals with knowledge so they could become agents of change within their own communities.
Since its launch in 2005, the Trinity Health Freedom Expo has hosted 27 conventions featuring expert speakers and wellness companies. The first Expo was held in Los Angeles. After the positive feedback, Whitman decided to make it a semiannual event. Long Beach, Austin, and Chicago became regular sites. His daughter, Julie Whitman Kline, was at his side at every Expo. After Whitman passed, Kline continued his mission, becoming the president of Trinity School of Natural Health and producer of the Trinity Health Freedom Expo
Kline is proud of her father’s legacy and fondly remembers each Expo. She enjoyed the host cities for different reasons and discovered a vibrant and passionate health freedom community in each. In particular, she reflects on the beauty of Los Angeles, the energy of Austin and the hometown feel of Chicago because it is near the Trinity headquarters in Warsaw, Indiana. But, most of all, she remembers her dad’s presence, the enthusiasm he had for the speakers and exhibitors and how he loved mingling with the attendees.
Each Trinity Health Freedom Expo is unique, but the connection and camaraderie remain the same. This year, the Expo returns to the Tinley Park Convention Center, in Tinley Park, for an interactive two-day Expo on October 2 and 3. At this impressive venue, you will learn from more than 45 health experts in four lecture rooms and browse over 75 wellness businesses in the gorgeous exhibit hall. In addition, a private symposium featuring Dr. Caroline Leaf, a world-renowned neuroscientist and best-selling author, will take place at 6 p.m. on Saturday. At the symposium, you will enjoy dinner while listening to an exclusive presentation from Leaf about mental health concepts from her newest book, Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess. The private symposium requires a separate ticket, and entrance to the Expo is required.
At the 2021 Trinity Health Freedom Expo, you will be immersed in the conversation with the interactive panel discussions about health freedom and mental health. On Saturday, October 2, at 2 p.m., the Health Freedom panel will feature Jonathan Emord, Diane Miller, Ty and Charlene Bollinger, and Judy Mikovits. On Sunday, October 3, at 2 p.m., the Mental Health panel will showcase Leaf, Jim Evans, and Dr. Todd Frisch. Robert Scott Bell, of the RSB Show, will moderate both panel discussions.
In addition to the live Expo in October, a virtual Expo will occur on February 26 and 27, 2022. The virtual Expo will include all the lecture recordings from the live event, plus new speakers, including Dr. Joseph Mercola, Erin Elizabeth, Dr. Colin T. Campbell and several others. At the virtual Expo, you will also experience two additional live-streamed interactive panels and online discussion boards, meeting rooms and an exhibit hall. Adding the virtual Expo to your 2021 live Expo attendee pass ensures that you will be able to experience all the informative lectures featured in the four speaking rooms at the October event.
Admission to the live Expo is $50 for the weekend or $30 for a single day. Add the virtual Trinity Health Freedom Expo on Feb. 26 and 27, 2022, for $10 to access the recorded speaker presentations and interactive exhibit hall.
