Videos From the 2011 APFED Parent Conference

Posted 9.8.11 | Nutrition Specialist

 Back in July we attended the 9thannual, APFED – the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders  parent conference, in Greenville, South Carolina.

 As we’ve mentioned before APFED was started by Elizabeth Mays, a mother whose son had eosinophilic gastroenteritis, to create a place where families could “come together to share knowledge, educate themselves, arm themselves with credible information, meet and support one another, raise public awareness and generate research dollars.”

The group is an excellent resource for accurate, up-to-date information on eosinophilic disorders and related problems.  Not only does APFED increase awareness and educate patients and physicians, the group also works to increase funding for research.  

We especially love attending the conference because it is a great opportunity for children affected by eosinophilic disorders and their families to learn from experts and one another.  

During the conference we filmed videos of the attendees with our FlipCam and created a video to help increase awareness about eosinophilic disorders for our NeocateUS YouTube channel.  So check them out and feel free to share them! 

Also, if you enjoy receiving information from Neocate via video please let us know by posting a comment on our YouTube channel.  We are continuing to work on more videos and we would love to hear from you!

So, what kind of other videos would you like to see on our channel?
