Functional Formularies is excited to announce its partnership with The Oley Foundation as a 2016 Patron Level Partner. The Oley Foundation helps consumers understand home IV and tube feeding through education, outreach, and networking. Founded over 30 years ago by Lyn Howard, MD, and her patient Clarence "Oley" Oldenburg, the Oley Foundation provides its 14,500 members with the information they need on topics surrounding home parenteral and enteral nutrition, including medical advances, research, and personal experiences.

Members of the Oley Foundation have the ability to join a community of individuals through Oley’s online chat forum, toll-free calls, and volunteer networks. Through these platforms, members are able to learn about others’ personal experiences and share their own. The exchange of ideas, encouragement, and support that members provide each other allow the opportunity for members to feel confident in their home IV nutrition and tube feeding regimens.

As a Patron Level Partner with The Oley Foundation, Functional Formularies is pleased to have the opportunity to share with Oley members facts, tools, and tips for adopting the use of blenderized feedings. By enabling members to achieve normalcy in their lives and by significantly improving quality of life, The Oley Foundation is a beneficial resource that Functional Formularies is pleased to support.
