I am a dietetic intern through Penn State university. I am putting together a marketing campaign to promote awareness of peanut allergies. Any information that you can send to me, handouts, posters, other sites to visit... would be greatly appreciated.

Yes! If you haven't already, go to [url=""][/url] There is also and a I'm sure there few other to get you started. But the first one is basically the original organization that started much of the literature and awareness programs as we know them today.
Good luck!!

Great news! Best of luck with your project. Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network has lots of good info, [url=""][/url]
They also have a teen site that my daughter finds useful, it is accessable from their home page. Another interesting site is
Food Allergy Survivors Together
I know others but am drawing a blank right now. Thank you for doing this particular project, the more awareness there is, the better.
