MANAGING FOOD ALLERGIES
The incidence of food allergy is highest in young children, 1 in 17 among those under age 3. Currently, more than 3 million children in the U.S. have food allergies.
Always carry your up-to-date rescue medication & auto-injector at all times. To address the growing problem of food allergies: there is a need for improved diagnostics and therapies, as well as up-to-date training for medical professionals. Beyond the Allergist's walls, broad community awareness and policy change at the state and national level are also necessary.
