SickKids Family Knowledge Group (SKFKG)

I was intrigued by this group, described as "a community of parents, caregivers, grandparents and the public at large who want to help The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) develop better products and services that are truly useful and effective.", so I subscribed to the newsletter and here is the first update after the summer hiatus [links are mine].
Hi Everyone,

I have some exciting updates to pass along to you.

Firstly, the second edition of The Hospital for Sick Children's Better Baby Food book authored by Daina Kalnins and Joanne Saab has hit the shelves at Chapters and a few other local stores (as well as online). Very exciting!! Thanks so much to all of you who tested the recipes and gave valuable feedback.

Secondly, SickKids Family Knowledge Group has secured a booth at the Today's Parent Baby & Toddler Show, November 7-9, 2008, Metro Toronto Convention Centre. If you happen to be going please drop by and say hi, or if you know of someone that will be attending, let them know to keep their eye out for us. We will be there to recruit more parents and caregivers for the SickKids Family Knowledge Group as we are anticipating more projects for 2009!

Enjoy the weekend,

Erika Schippel
