Is anyone going? I'd really like to hook up with other PA parents and/or patients -- especially anyone located in the Minneapolis area.

pHi all,br /
We attended the FAN Conference in Arlington, Virginia today, 3/18/2000. It was great!!! The topics were informative and well presented. One session was on the psychological effects of caring for a child with a chronic health problem. Dr. Robert Wood of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore spoke about the differences between food intolerance and allergies, the different tests and their reliability, anaphylaxis and its symptoms and what researchers are working on in the way of treatments for PA. The luncheon was set up in tables of 10, organized geographically, to allow people to network with others in their area. It was very nice to talk with others in similar situations and we had a 22-year-old PA young woman and her mother at our table. It was great to hear from both of their perspectives how it was growing up with a PA. They were true pioneers! My husband and I both attended and while we both thought we were well educated and up to speed on PA, we learned quite a bit. We would highly recommend attending a conference to everyone./p
