pHi,br /
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?br /
Thanks!/p

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.

Jan,
Thanks for responding! 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.

Wanted to be sure you knew about the "Support Group" Forum (Discussion Board).
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.
