My childs school in Waltham, MA has a support group for parents with food allergic children. We are part of a bigger group. We welcome new people all of the time.

Thank you Rose, I am not to far from Waltham. I live in Milford. I'd be really interested.
Thanks a bunch.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America: New England Chapter has lectures and support group meetings in the Framingham area I think. Here is the link to their web site.

For example, our allergist Dr. Michael Young (Peanut Allergy Answer Book) has spoken many times at their meetings.
How old is your PA child? My PA daughter will be 3 in December, and I live pretty close to you in Ashland.

Thanks so much for the info. on the group, I'd really like to attend. I recently met a women in the store who had a child w/ a PA, she was a complete stranger and I could have talked to her for days. It is amazing how much in common you can have w/ someone when PA is involved!! My PA son is 20 months (he was a Preemie 3 months early).
