We cordially invite you to the Stone Centre’s second annual information session: “Taking the fear out of kidney stones”, Jun 23/15 at the Paetzold Education Centre at Vancouver General Hospital from 6:30 to 8:30pm!
If you have ever passed a kidney stone you know that an attack can occur at anytime and anywhere. This can also happen to someone who has never had kidney stones, someone who is a friend or a loved one.
The Stone Centre is a partner in your fight against kidney stones. At this event, an interdisciplinary care team including urology doctors and researchers will be giving talks on kidney stone prevention and cutting-edge studies to improve prognosis. In addition, a dietitian will also be demonstrating food preparations with different combinations that will reduce the risk of forming stones. And for the first time, the event will feature three panelists providing patient perspective on their journey to beating kidney stones.
Kidney stone disease does not have to define your life, so come learn ways to manage this illness and maintain a balanced lifestyle!
Light refreshments will be served after the talks. Guests are absolutely welcome. Please RSVP with the number of people from your party by June 16, 2015 by email or by calling (604) 875-4111 ext. 62421. Please see attached invite for event information. We want to continue our fight against kidney stones with you, and look forward to seeing you!
