27th Annual Oley Consumer/Clinician Conference Highlights

Redondo Beach was a spectacular location for this year’s Oley conference. As one attendee noted, “Southern California weather is always the best!” Total conference attendance this year set a new record for us. Of the 394 people who came, 89 were home parenteral and/or enteral consumers (68 adults, 21 pediatric) and 132 were family members and caregivers. The rest of the attendees were clinicians and exhibitors.

The conference presentations were outstanding and informative. Many of the PowerPoint shows are available at www.oley.org and several of the sessions will be available on DVD this fall.

Forty-nine children rotated through child care and the youth activities! The kids had the opportunity to enjoy a “faux” campout with Painted Turtle camp staff, make stuffed animals, tour on a glass-bottom boat, race Big Wheels, and visit the marine center to learn about ocean ecology, while the adults stayed inside to learn about better managing their, or their loved one’s, nutrition therapy.

In the evenings and on Thursday, we all came together for the silent auction, town hall meeting, the walk-a-thon, and the picnic.

Thanks to everyone who came and helped make this conference a success. We hope you enjoy the photos!
