Our next meeting will be a discussion regarding the condition of Enteritis. This is an inflammatory response of serious dehydration, and it put me in the hospital in January. We’ll share my story, have an explanation of this condition by Charles, discuss various ORS (oral rehydration solutions) and have taste tests of different ORS, and talk about self-advocacy when doctors and ERs have no clue how to treat patients they’ve never seen before. This should be an important and interesting session and we’d like to encourage everyone to attend to learn about this.

Thank you to Julie Adams for introducing us to the Aspen Club of UC Health at our last meeting. Longs Peak is printing more applications for the Aspen Club and I’ll try to bring some to our meeting in April. The Aspen Club is coordinating with the Age Well program at LUH for social and wellness activities for all seniors.
