    Bio

    Dr. Arthur Brawer is an arthritis specialist whose educational career developed at Brandeis University, Boston University School of Medicine and Boston University Medical Center. For the past forty-two years he has maintained a private practice in Long Branch, New Jersey, has been the director of rheumatology at Monmouth Medical Center, and has held the position of associate clinical professor of medicine at Drexel University School of Medicine in Philadelphia. Dr. Brawer is also an assistant clinical professor of medicine at Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine in New Brunswick. His research interests and peer-reviewed publications encompass new arthritis conditions, new arthritis treatments, alternative medicine, product liability issues, fibromyalgia, physical trauma and arthritis, vaccine-induced autoimmunity, trainee education, and medical ailments caused by chemical contamination of various environmental compartments. During the latter half of the 1990’s Dr. Brawer was invited to give testimony before the United States Congress, Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug Administration, aides to the president’s chief health care advisor, the director of the Office of Women’s Health at the White House, a domestic policy advisor to the vice-president, and the United Nations. Recently his research has attracted the attention of The Harvard School of Public Health, The World Health Organization, and The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health. Dr. Brawer has served as an expert witness in matters dealing with chemical contamination of public water supplies, personal injury, medical malpractice, silicone breast implants, disability determinations, workplace toxicity, and immunizations. He has been the recipient of numerous Daubert challenges to the admissibility of his testimony in federal, state and superior courts, and none have been successful in excluding his testimony whenever he has been afforded the opportunity to personally present scientific data in judicial proceedings. Dr. Brawer’s inclusion into a medical delegation to China in 1987 was complemented twelve years later by the publication of a new book, “Holistic Harmony,” which assists consumers in choosing competent, qualified and legitimate alternative medicine practitioners. Civic activities include fund raising for the New Jersey Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation, non-compensable operation of the arthritis clinic at his primary institution, a prior weekly newspaper column, a prior five years at the helm of the New Jersey Rheumatism Association, and public educational seminars. Leisure activities and interests include golf, tennis, piano and skiing.
