I think the Mrs. and I are going to be heading to Chicago on the 22nd. Anyone else planning to attend? Maybe we could put our ATDT ID's on nametags or meet up for deep dish pizza? I am sure the ED would hate that!!

I wish I was going. Many of the parents from ATDT are going, particularly some of those who have been around for a while. I know sk8r31 one of the moderators is going to be there along with LauraCollins_US our founder and CEO goingtobeatthis Belinda. 

I will pass your idea on to Laura who is organising in case she doesn't see this.

Hi there.
Many members are going, a lot use the FB page too. It is a closed group so there is plenty of chat there on who is going.

Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine.

Hi BB, & any other ATDT parents/carers,

I will be in Chicago for the FEAST of Knowledge Forum Day, as will a number of FEAST Board members and other FEASTies.

There are 90 or so registered, and an additional few places still available.  There have been a number of scholarships for the event, and there still may be a couple left.

It's going to be an amazing day...and there are a couple of dads who will be presenting, so BB that will be helpful to you in particular, I think.

I'm also putting together the name tags for the event, and I like the idea of somehow indicating forum names if desired.  I'll give that a think.

I'm sure there will be an opportunity for those who'd like to have a coffee or meal afterward.

Warmly,
sk8r31

I am fairly close to Chicago at the moment, but I'm not sure that I'll be able to make it. Everything is a bit unplanned at the moment. Either way, I hope that everyone has a wonderful time and learns lots!
