Thank you, Joanne.
Somehow I missed this on the 'other thread' you referred to.
I will definitely use this is any and all meetings with schools - and we're still 18 months away from starting Kindergarten!! It is startling, but necessarily so. I'm glad I took the time to read it. I printed out immediately!!

Does anybody know how you can view the whole journal artlcle without joining for $172.00 through the journal? I tried the NY Public Library but they don't get copies of the Journal. Any suggestions?

Joanne, thanks for the great article.
Dakota3030 - you may want to call your local hospital and speak to the library. They may be able to send you the article for a fee. Also many hospital libraries are open to the public.

Maybe your Allergist can get you a copy. Never hurts to ask.

I thought I would post some tips for those looking for this on the PubMed site:
Go to
[url="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/"]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/[/url]
and then do a search for:
11150011
-------
more information on 11150011:
: Bock SA, Munoz-Furlong A, Sampson HA.
Fatalities due to anaphylactic reactions to foods.

If you click on the
"J Allergy Clin Immunol" box there is some information near the bottom of that page (which this box links) which has information about how to receive a single copy for only $35 dollars. (see Access Single Article)

I have just printed the story of Megan and my brother will be bringing it into work as a discussion with his staff. He is always great with avoidence,but an actual story may help with the educating of the staff. This story makes me so nervous and I usually can not read them,but I do feel it will be a good story to pass around to people for education.

Please note, the full text of the original journal article (from which the MSNBC story was taken) is available online and free of charge.
Go to: [url="http://www.idealibrary.com"]http://www.idealibrary.com[/url]
Select "Browse Journals", then find "The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology". Note, it is sorted under the letter "T"! From there, find the latest edition (Jan, 2001) and scroll down to the article.
The full text is interesting, with a table describing each of the 32 fatal cases.
