If you are a parent of a child with food allergies, we invite you to our March 2016 food allergy support group meeting. Designed for parents with kids with food allergies, our meetings (that meet every other month), help support parents with a wide range of food allergy topics. The goal of the meeting is to provide a safe place where parents can share their concerns with other parents that can understand their food allergy situation.
According to FARE, researchers estimate that nearly 15 million Americans have food allergies and that nearly 1 in every 13 children. This means that with roughly two children in every classroom, food allergies affect many families in Orange County. Our goal is to provide a safe place to address this need.
In addition to speaking on Food Allergies, our group this month will continue the discussion of Oral Immunotherapy (OIT), which is a very popular topic. Many of the families that attend our support group have first hand knowledge on some of the OIT programs that available and are more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
We hope that if you have a child with food allergies that you will decide to visit us Tuesday, March 16, 2016 at 6:30 PM. Our meeting will be at Saddleback Church in the Ministry Office 2 building. For directions, please visit us online at: http://www.ocfoodallergy.com/when-we-meet/
