Are We the Minority? How do we effectively share information?

Are We the Minority? How do we effectively share information? I had a conversation with my good friend, Kyle Dine, a month or so ago that has really haunted me. We were discussing all the recent lives lost because of anaphylactic reactions, and food allergies. As a parent, these deaths chill me, I know that one exposure- one […]

Emergency Preparedness

Everything happens for a reason. It’s cliché I know, but it rings so true. My friend Heidi Bayer lives in Brooklyn New York, and blogs at Brooklyn Allergy Mom. I first got to meet Heidi at the first Mylan Summit over a year ago. When Hurricane Sandy caused so much devastation to NYC and New […]

Access to Epinephrine Testimony

Maine is late to the party in adapting the Access to Epinephrine laws. I have been watching with interest as this was first introduced in Virginia, then as more states adopted it.

I need to buy […]

ALLER-MATES

I am so excited to share this company with you! I recently contacted AllerMates to invite them to the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference I am organizing. I sort of knew about their products from just seeing them online, and from other bloggers. I admit I had not really looked at everything they are making and […]

Pre-Kindergarten Screening

I had a second meeting with the staff at our public Pre-K school about a month ago. I met with the principal, the school nurse, the current 2 pre-K teachers, the kitchen manager, the head of the districts food service, and the guidance counselor.  As I have mentioned my biggest concerns are the meals in the […]

Food Allergy Science Fair Project

Last night Caleb had the school Science Fair. He was very excited to participate in it this year- [we missed it last year]. When he said he wanted to do the science fair, he did not really have any ideas in mind. I naturally turned to Google- to try to find appropriate 1st grade level […]
