HAN Week 2023 will have familiar activities along with a few twists!

- A survey will be launched, more info will follow nearer the time
- #thisisme and #thisisus will be familiar features for everyone to be part of
- Prizes to be won
- While artificial feeding is essential for people, it isn't all about the routine, procedures and illness(es). People on HAN have lives, interests, hobbies, family, friends, education and holidays to fit it as well as the feeds and medical stuff!
hopefully with a twist! Gary is nil by mouth and fuelled by enteral nutrition. He likes to take part in ultra challenges and finds these activities support his well-being and mental health. Gary is the first to admit they obviously are not for everyone. He encourages people to find what makes them feel good and focus on taking time out to focus on themselves.
