Speaker: Kezia Moore: Oncology Dietician
This Health and Wellbeing Meeting will celebrate the 20th anniversary of our first support group meeting in 1999.
Louise Gilroy is an Oncology Nurse Practitioner with the Belfast Trust. She assesses patients for chemotherapy in the clinic. Oncology Nurse Practitioners work closely with physicians, surgeons and families to care for patients and help get them through all stages of treatment. Louise will be talking to us about the later effects of chemotherapy.
Kezia Moore is an Oncology Dietician based at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre. Kezia works with surgical teams, clinical nurse specialists and other health professionals to help patients maintain their weight and meet their nutritional requirements. She will be talking to us about the importance of nutrition after treatment.
We will be updating you on our recent Awareness Campaign, the Oesophacycle and Park Run Events, local fundraisers and upcoming exciting new activities and campaigns.
We will be providing soup and sandwiches after the event to give everyone plenty of time to mingle, ask questions, give and receive advice and make new friends. As ever, if there are any questions you would like to submit in advance, please call or email Valerie (details below).
We understand that many patients and carers live some distance from the venue and we have done our best to come to an arrangement with the hotel. Discounted rates are available by contacting Beechlawn reception on 028 9060 2100 and telling them you are an OPA (N.I) member.
To allow for numbers for the catering, please confirm your attendance at the meeting by telephone to Valerie on 028 9020 8602 or by email to email@example.com
