Exciting details about this years camp!

This years Family Camp is just around the corner (August 22-25th) and we're excited to announce some of the awesome folks who will joining us! We look forward to the information and inspiration they will be sharing with us, it's something you won't want to miss. If you haven't registered, there's still time... click below for more details on our registration page:


Dr. Cary Harding from OHSU will return to update us on the PegPal trials as well as give some info on the newly published Medical and Dietary Guidelines for PKU. Those who were at camp last summer and were able to hear Dr. Harding speak know this will be a very informative talk. 

Kevin Alexander will also be joining us this year. Kevin is an adult with PKU who works in the field of film and media. A couple years ago he made a video about his life with PKU, called "My PKU Life" which became very popular and set him on a path to begin advocating and producing films about PKU and Newborn Screening. Kevin will be a great inspiration for PKU parents, teens and kids alike. We are very excited to have him join us. You can check out some of his PKU and Newborn Screening films on his website: http://www.pkulife.tv

Gina Valente, whom many of you may know from her Gina Cooks PKU YouTube videos or from one of her excellent recipe books, will be our wonderful chef this summer. Not only is Gina a great cook, she's also a PKU parent. Gina is planning all our delicous meals with both low protein and higher protein options, as well as sharing with us during workshop time. We're excited to have her join us this summer!

Malathy Ramanujam of Taste Connections is planning to join us again and share some of her amazing recipes, tips and tricks. If you've never met or done a workshop with Mal, you are missing out! She can teach even the most timid low pro cook how to make delicious food for you or your low pro loved one. 

Looking forward to seeing you all at camp!
