We had appts. at the allergist today and I see fliers there...Food Allergy Awareness & Management Seminar on September 25th. Keynote speakers are Dr. Hugh Sampson, MD and Shideh Mofidi, RD from NYC Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, and Kenneth J. Falci, Director of Office of Scientific Analysis and Support from the FDA.

There will be an interactive forum with expert panel: "Practical Solutions for Managing Food Allergies in Schools: Reality vs. Practicality. Is there a practical solution?"

Anyone near Buffalo, NY interested in going??

I think this is very cool! I'm planning on attending.

Hi guys, the person to contact for information is Diana at 1-716-541-0318 or email her at [email]dmonaco@ora.fda.gov[/email] . I emailed her and she is mailing me some brochures. Once I have the detailed schedule I will post it. Maybe I'll see you there.

Hi! Our 504 coordinator passed this out to the district nurses. I was very pleased. Our nurse asked me to go and I signed up. Kelly

momma2boys, well, this is something I can keep in mind, certainly. Does erik drive? I've never heard him mention it. I know Anna Marie doesn't (I don't know if she can, but I know her DH does the driving). Then, there's Idiot Woman here who doesn't drive.
However, I've actually taken the bus to Buffalo and found it to be an okay trip.
Can I stop at Albright Knox while I'm there?
There are a LOT of other PA.com members in and around the Toronto area as well. Perhaps attendance will be quite heavy. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Actually, just realized this might be good for a group e-mail. As I posted above, there are a LOT of members in and around Toronto *proper*, in Ontario period, and probably close to Buffalo in America as well.
