Forrester is a medical doctor and he relies on his personal experiences with patients to opine on the health outcomes of the LGBT community. But now, his medical “credentials” are coming into question. Over at Pam’s House Blend, equality supporter Scott Rose investigated Forrester’s claim — made prominently on his campaign website — that he is a “Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine” and discovered that Forrester does not have any affiliation with the group. As the group’s executive director explains:
The quick answer to your questions is that Dr. Forrester is not, and never has been, a member of ACPM (much less a Fellow, which is our highest designation of membership). However, this is troubling to us, too, that he’s apparently claiming to be a Fellow of ACPM, and we would like to know where Dr. Forrester is making these proclamations so that we can approach him and demand that he cease falsely using ACPM credentials in his campaign or wherever else he’s using it.
While Forrester has yet to respond to the charges, the ACPM has contacted his office asking him to “please remove our name and any references to us from their website.”
