Over seven years ago, nine families started a support group in Minnesota for people dealing with food allergy. This group has become one of the most active in the country. For food allergy families living in Minnesota, resources and events like the Food Allergy Resource Fair, to be held Sept. 25, 2010, are available at little or no cost. This Resource Fair, their fourth annual, brings food allergy vendors together with families who can try out new foods and products. Children have the opportunity to explore "under the sea" with the crew at Underwater Adventures, while their parents have an opportunity to learn at the "Ask a Doctor" station. The Fair is free and open to the public.
For those who do not live in the Minnesota area, a look at the Food Allergy Support Group of Minnesota website provides answers to many food allergy questions and concerns. From how to handle a new food allergy diagnosis, to accommodations that should be expected for food allergic students, the site is packed with useful tips and tools.
Thank you to all those behind the scenes powering the resources and tools of the Food Allergy Support Group of Minnesota. You provide a valuable service to MN families and others across the world.
