YOU Inc. meeting with dietician Melanie McGrice on 7/11/2015


YOU Inc. aims to hold a major meeting annually with an appropriate guest speaker; it was with delight that YOU welcomed Melanie McGrice, a dietician from Nutrition Plus, to the Nurses Memorial Centre on Saturday 7th November...


It was heartening to have a good attendance of old and new members, many of these were members from YOU’s closed Facebook page. Prior to the keynote speaker an informal YOU Talk was held, sitting in a circle everyone introduced themselves with a short chat about themselves, once again this idea has proved to be a great way to help people relax knowing others share their fears in adapting to all the challenges of life as an ostomate. With perfect timing then Melanie McGrice arrived for her presentation which was informal but informative - a summary of her talk is available here, with thanks to Jane who took the notes, and Melanie has approved the publishing of them. Following this there was plenty of time for a chat and an opportunity to enjoy the delicious afternoon tea. Thanks to the companies for their trade displays, always an important component of YOU meetings.

Apologies were received from Anne, Roz, Mike, Genevieve, Rex and two companies - Coloplast & Dansac.
