Other Food Allergies
Have you trained your co-workers?
Someone on another food allergy board recently posted this question. WOW! Never thought of this. (And I am in the medical field.)Of course, most of my co-workers know I have serious food allergies. One friend even asked me to go to lunch before her one day, as she had brought leftover Chinese food w/ shrimp. How nice! Many have even commented on my beautiful gold Medic Alert bracelet that DH gave me for Christmas a couple of years ago. But I have never shown my colleagues which purse is mine (we keep them in the same room, just in a "clean" cabinet), where my Epi-pen is stored.
Talked with my supervisor on Friday. They thought this was a great idea. Will be taking the Epi-trainer to work for a demo.
Just a thought,
