In January, Oley staff attended Clinical Nutrition Week—the annual meeting of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.)—where we learned about new trends and research.

The keynote address, “The Cost of Safety” presented by Dr. Debra Simmons and Dr. Meredith Kilgore, was a compelling discussion of the costs and value measurement of and where cost and value intersect—of clinical safety improvements. At smaller sessions and roundtables, we learned more about blenderized diets, transitioning to adult care, skin care, and more. The Oley booth was busy with clinicians looking to find the latest news.

 

Lyn Howard Advocacy Award

At CNW, Oley member Linda Gravenstein was given A.S.P.E.N.’s Lyn Howard Nutrition Support Consumer Advocacy Award. For many years, Linda has advocated for her daughter, who has been on parenteral nutrition over twenty years, and in so doing, she has paved the way for other parents with kids on home nutrition support. Linda is also on the TSA’s Coalition for Travelers with Disabilities, and has been involved with efforts to raise awareness about the Medicare Home Infusion Site of Care Act.

 

In receiving the award, Linda said, “I would like to thank Dr. Lyn Howard and the Oley Foundation for giving us and so many a purposeful life. I would also like to thank my daughter Megan for being my light and her fierce independence that allows me to share with others what we have learned in our journey.”
