Metabolic Family Day

A Family Day was held for patients with metabolic disorders and their families at Rock Cats Stadium in New Britain on May 17, 2015. Sherry Gray from the UConn Extension – Hartford County coordinated the event. The event was hosted by UConn Health Center, UConn Extension and Yale New Haven Hospital and was sponsored by Vitaflo USA. 83 people attended including patients with Phenylketonuria (PKU), Urea cycle disorders, Maple Syrup Urine Disease and Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders. A table from Vitaflo had metabolic formula tasting and educational materials and a low protein picnic was provided in addition to tickets for the baseball game. Patients and family members were able to mingle and meet each other. The weather cooperated and everyone had a fun time!
