UTV featured the OMS Recovery Program

UTV featured interviews with Greg Hendron, a local neurologist and OMS Founder Professor George Jelinek.

Regulars will remember Greg Hendron, the solicitor who we reported had set up a specialist vegan restaurant with wife Caroline in Belfast. Greg was diagnosed with MS aged 36 and the restaurant's launch signified the importance Greg placed on the OMS Recovery Program and for a plant-based diet.

Greg and Caroline promote clean eating, plant-based, dairy-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free food. Always keen to spread the word and offer support, in August's Whatever It Takes newsletter Greg was happy to publicly pass on his telephone and email address to facilitate setting up a Northern Ireland OMS support group.

And now Greg's a TV star, as he was featured on UTV in a report about Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis in the TV company's current affairs show – Live Tonight. Also interviewed were Dr Orla Gray, a consultant neurologist at the Ulster Hospital, and OMS founder Professor George Jelinek, via Skype.
