Hi! I don't know of any support group, but if you are looking for a great allergist- you can go to Dr Robert Wood. He is at the Department of Pediatrics at The John Hopkins Hospital. He is the Associate Professor of Pediatrics and also has a peanut allergy. I don't know what we would have done without him. His number is 410-955-5883. Good Luck!

Author Topic: Maryland -support groups DD Member Posts: 3 Registered: Mar 2001 posted March 31, 2001 11:21 PM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi, I am the mom of a peanut and tree nut allergic child. I have read many of the boards on this wonderful site but this is my first time posting. I have been told that there are no support groups in Maryland which I find hard to believe. Does anyone know of such a group? Also, I'm thinking of starting a group. Is there an interest? Does anyone have advice on forming a group? Thanks! IP: Logged JanBP Member Posts: 99 Registered: Feb 2000 posted April 02, 2001 08:29 AM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm interested. Would like to find someone in medical field to be on board to answer issues that come up. To date I haven't found one. I went to one meeting of the Maryland support group about 2 1/2 years ago it was excellent and at that time about 30 members were there for the talk given by an allergist. It was sad to learn that it folded. Feel free to e mail me.

I'm glad to hear that you are interested. I have spoken with several parents who also would like to form a group. I am told that we need to get a medical advisor, which I am working on. Since May 6-12th is Food Allergy Awareness Week, I was hoping that we could all get together during that week and exchange ideas. DD

You should move your discussion on Maryland Support Groups to that Forum and find or create a "Maryland" thread, this will help you and others in the future looking for this information. You can do a manual search or use the "search feature" on that forum to locate other discussion on "Maryland". Be sure to post any information regarding a Maryland Support Group that you find.

Definately count me in on a Maryland Support Group. I can suggest another pediatric allergist - Dr. Duane Gels in Anne Arundel County. My 23 month old daughter sees him and we are very pleased with his attentiveness.

Chris, I think I met you at a support group meeting a few years ago at Bibelot. Yes?? I am interested in being a part of a support group interested in peanut, milk, and egg allergy issues. Please post a date for the meeting if there is one! Thanks, Alicia

I'm still interested in a support group. JanBP
