On April 22, 2017, Earth Day, we held our annual Keto Party to celebrate and recognize the achievements of our patients and their families.
The event was a great opportunity for the ketogenic diet community to get to know each other. Families who have just started using the diet could meet with parents who have more than 10 years of experience. Patients could swap stories about which recipes taste the best and how they explain the diet to their friends.
This year, about 25 patients attended, ranging in age from infants to teenagers. Entertainment included Earth Day-themed arts and crafts, face painting, dancing and music.
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped make this event a success! And a special shout out to our child life specialist, Pam Rosenblum, music therapists Mike Mahoney and Pawel Machura, and Drexel University Nursing students who created a fun-filled day for our patients.
We look forward to next year’s party and hope to see you all there in spring 2018!
