This media advisory from Anaphylaxis Canada covers a few things - Shannon's story, September as life threatening allergy month, and Bill 3, along with a seminar this coming week at CHEO in Ottawa. So, I thought I would post it separately rather than trying to find appropriate threads to place the message in. I received the advisory from Cindy at NASK:-

Subject: Media Advisory

Hello Everyone,

Attached you'll find the media advisory that CHEO will send on the 20th.
Please feel free to distribute as you see fit. CHEO has asked anyone
interested in attending to advise me instead of contacting them -

To access an update on Bill 3: an act to protect anaphylactic students, or
"Sabrina's Story", use the link to our Life-threatening Allergy Month.

For your information,

Laurie Harada

Best wishes! [img][/img]
