Anaphylaxis Awareness Day 2015
For so many people the answer is not clear. The risk associated with food allergies is often downplayed. People living with food allergies can be viewed as overly cautious, even annoying to others. Families living with food allergies often deal with increased anxiety and stress related to fear of anaphylaxis. No matter how carefully we read labels and avoid allergens we know things can happen.
Today, March 13 is Anaphylaxis Awareness Day. If you know someone with food allergies and are not sure how to recognize anaphylaxis or what to do, I encourage you to take just a few minutes to click on the picture below for more information from the Food Allergy Research & Education website.
