This workshop is intended for parents, grandparents or caregivers of patients newly diagnosed with food allergy. Food is everywhere and navigating this new diagnosis is challenging. There is a great deal of misinformation online and this workshop will provide evidence-based information about food avoidance, myths around food allergy, label reading, as well as preparedness for allergic reactions. Additionally, we have seen increased anxiety in patients surrounding their food allergy later in childhood, and we will review prevention strategies to ensure healthy coping with this diagnosis.
