FAAW 2011 has arrived. It is time to accelerate our efforts and spread the word about food allergies. The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) website offers many resources to help raise awareness: flyers, various presentations, brochures, and posters, all aimed at different age groups and segments of the population.
Remember, understanding your or your child's food allergies is essential, but it is NOT enough. Educating others is just as important. Get out there and spread the word in any way you can. Put a flyer up at work or at school, hand out brochures when you're with friends and family. The more people around you understand why and what you do, and how serious food allergies are, the safer your environment will be.
Have a great week!
