Essentials of Food Allergy Workshops for Caregivers
Our Essentials of Food Allergy Workshops are available to all Lurie Children’s Allergy and Immunology patients and friends of Lurie Children’s. The meetings are held monthly in the Sarah and Peer Pedersen Family Learning Center at Lurie Children’s main hospital.
During the meetings we review:
- The basic science of an allergic reaction
- Food allergy avoidance
- Emergency health care plans
- When and how to use injectable epinephrine
- Common emotions and social challenges that a family may encounter
Additionally, FASE offers topic-based workshops on issues such as back to school, traveling, parental anxiety, holiday preparation, current food allergy research and more.
