Hot off the heals of my last speaking engagement, I’ll be visiting the University of Michigan on Saturday, April 16 between 10 AM – 3 PM to give two presentations as part of their Patient 2 Patient Education Project. My topics will include Living with an Ostomy and how to stay hydrated when you’ve got IBD and/or an ostomy. For each presentation, I will be co-presenting with either a Registered Dietitian or a WCOCN (ostomy nurse).
If you live in Michigan, I’d love to meet you there! And if meeting me wasn’t enough, I’ll be joined by the world famous Sara Ringer of Inflamed and Untamed, Amber of Colitis Ninja, Amber Tresca of AboutIBD.com and more IBD advocates that you’ve most likely heard of ;)
If you aren’t able to travel, I will also be joining two fellow IBD advocates Dan Sharp from dansharpIBD.org and Ryan Stevens from crohnsguy.com for an online Twitter Chat: “Dudes and IBD”. The chat will feature several FAQs that are geared towards guys, but I’m sure both men and women will find value in the chat.
The chat will take place Wednesday, April 27th at 7:00pm EST, and you can follow me on Twitter or simply follow the hashtag #IBDSC (pro tip: familiarize yourself with Twitter before trying to follow the chat).
Disclosure: My flight and accomodations are being covered by the U of M for the P2PEP. Janssen Biotech is sponsoring the Dudes with IBD twitter chat. I am also being compensated for my time for both events, but my opinions are completely my own.
