Help--final push for important peanut and tree nut research
Hi. In August I had posted about some work being done in updating the original studies (done by Mt. Sinai) looking at peanut and tree nut reactions occurring in restaurants, at school/daycare, and on airlines. These present studies are being conducted by the University of Michigan and FAAN. To date, we have over 1200 participants (approximately 575 restaurant, 425 school, 250 airlines), but I am hoping to have further enrollment before this data is presented at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology meeting in March. I have some great data to present, but need to capture as many experiences as possible. If you or your child has had a reaction to peanut or a tree nut (or both) in any of these venues, please visit [url="http://foodallergy.org/Research/Surveys.html"]http://foodallergy.org/Research/Surveys.html[/url] (directly), or go to [url="http://www.foodallergy.org,"]http://www.foodallergy.org,[/url] and look for the magnifying glass at the bottom right of the home page to be directed to the study homepage.
These studies should not take one more than 15 minutes to complete, and you can take as many of the 3 as are applicable.
I hope that everyone has had a good holiday season and a happy new year. I hope that this work can help you or your children. Thanks for your consideration.
