Aashayein, the day long fun and educational, free event for dialysis patients is going to be held in Bangalore! Its on Sunday, December 2nd at Hotel Fern Citadel near Anand Rao Circle from 9 a.m.
Aashayein is a great event for us dialysis patients. There have been two events organized in Hyderabad so far and patients have loved it. There are educational talks by nephrologists, transplant surgeons, vascular surgeons, dieticians and patients. There's usually some great entertainment as well.
One of the highlights of the event is the elaborate lunch prepared as per the dialysis patient diet. Usually, we patients have very limited eating options when we go for any such event. Most of the food is too dangerous for us to eat. This can be very frustrating. You see all the fancy food and people gorging away and you can only look! At Aashayein, the tables are turned. Patients get the fancy food while people with normal kidneys are served a modest meal!
Patients are also given a whole bunch of goodies.
Registration is mandatory and will close when the capacity is filled. So, I would register early! (I have already registered for the event and am really looking forward to it!)
