Oley Conference First Impressions

 
 First-timers and returning attendees find camaraderie at the annual conference


“As a new program associate for the Oley Foundation, I attended my first annual Oley conference in Greenwich, Connecticut, July 5–8. I was very impressed with overall cordiality, in combination with a sense of purpose and commitment towards bettering the lives of those on HPEN. The information was presented thoroughly and professionally.


“The social activities and dining allowed me to meet many consumers and to broaden my awareness of their experiences. The silent auction was great fun and the ‘family’ feeling at the walkathon was quite inspiring.


Working alongside the Oley staff to host the conference was a joy, and I am already looking forward to next year’s annual conference.”

—Phil Kellerman


“I enjoyed the conference and learned a great deal. I thought I knew a lot heading in but getting to know others and their stories was enlightening. It gave me a sense of renewed hope and a feeling of fitting in with other non-eaters.”

—Pam S.


“As a first-time conference attendee, I was blown away. The speakers were wonderful and informative. I also enjoyed meeting fellow ‘tubies.’”
—Diana D.
