Dripline Issue 39 is out!

The February-April 2022 issue of our newsletter, Dripline, is out now and available here or from our Dripline page.

Our first issue for 2022 sadly includes farewelling one of our members, Tracie, who lost her battle with her health in February; she will be missed. Our articles include information about this year’s AuSPEN consumer workshop and PNDU social gathering in November; learning about the importance of vitamin D in our diet; learning about 4 of our members’ hobbies and interests, who are still ‘living their best life’ on HPN; learning of possible adjustments to our HPN regime that may facilitate holidays; and more. I hope you enjoy learning about these various aspects of life on HPN.

Happy reading,

Dripline Editor
