The Nutrishare Neighborhood as we like to refer to it is a get together with Nutrishare’s home TPN consumers, caregivers, and friends on a monthly conference call. Each month we will start off the conversation with a special guest, who will share with us helpful and interesting parenteral nutrition information or an opinion that others may expand upon. If we get off topic that is perfectly ok – It’s your Neighborhood!
The Nutrishare Neighborhood monthly call may fall on a different day each month but the
call time is always the same:
4:00 PM Pacific, 6:00 PM Central and 7:00 PM Eastern time.
Contact Linda Gravenstein for the CALL-IN number and passcode OR fill out the form to the right of the page so we can send them to you >>

OUR AMAZING TEAM!
Webster Dictionary defines journey as going from one place to another usually with a long distance involved. Nutrishare defines a journey as an experience that involves planning, assistance, sharing, support, and knowledge to realize a memorable experience.
We have developed a program that assists our consumers with their travel. Travel for the TPN consumer can be complicated but with advance planning and outreach, we feel confident that your journey will be accessible and straightforward.
Every journey is different and requires specific planning. We have developed a working relationship with TSA and can arrange for assistance in maneuvering the security screening process. We have tips for cruise planning, train travel, and the car trip whether a short weekend trip or a cross-country journey. As each type of travel requires different timelines we ask that you contact us early in your planning. We can direct you and assist you with packing your solutions and supplies, arrange to ship, and even what type of travel insurance would be best for your trip.
