LoPro Network Event
LoPro Network is an education and cooking program for patients with PKU and their families. This regional, interactive, 11⁄2-day event is designed to provide a unique opportunity to learn more about disabilities associated with blood Phe above the recommended treatment range and to improve low- protein cooking skills. Participants work side-by-side with professional chefs using recipes from the app “Simply Sauces, Soups and Smoothies ” as well as participate in educational workshops led by experts in the field of metabolism. The last event was held at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY (see photo gallery). Previous events were held at Le Cordon Bleu in Boston, MA and Seattle, WA.
LoPro Network is sponsored by BioMarin.
