We are forming a Pennsylvania "Coalition."

The goal of this effort is to pull together as many FA families across Pennsylvania as possible. We want speak with a LOUD VOICE when asking our legislature to enact much needed laws that will help the FA community with issues such as schools, EMT's Self-Carry Epinephrine for students, Restuarants (the restaurant Bill was introduced in June and will need a full-fledged letter writing campaign and phone calls asking your Reps for support) etc..

Right now, Rep, Dennis O'Brien is onboard and willing to help us ove forward but we need help from our fellow Pennsylvanians!!!

Please contact me via PeanutAllergy or via personal email. We need people (families, doctors, school nurses) from ALL OVER Pennsylvania to write letters and encourage others to support our needs!

Many of us are in the South East (Phila and surrounding areas--so anyone from Western, Northern, Central, SW, NW, NE from anywhere!! please get involved!


This will also be a great way to learn who else is in your area!
