pContact the AAIA (Allergy and Asthma Information Association)and they can let you know about local support groups in Canada [url="http://www.aaia.ca"]www.aaia.ca[/url] (click on the AAIA logo on the top right corner of the screen)./p
pIt is also a good starting point for many of us who are just beginning to learn. /p

pBARRIE (AND AREA) ONTARIO/p
pI had called the Simcoe County District Public Health Unit a couple ofbr /
weeks ago to see if they had a nurse that could do a presentation atbr /
Jesse's school. They didn't. However, they gave me the names andbr /
telephone numbers of two different people to contact that may be ofbr /
some assistance to me./p
p The one person I called, Michelle, runs a support group for multiplebr /
food allergies, although mostly PA members, in Barrie. Me, beingbr /
where I am, would still be welcome to attend her meetings. If anyonebr /
is interested, please contact me by e-mail and I will provide herbr /
telephone number./p
p I must say, in simply a very short conversation with this woman, shebr /
came across as a wonderful, caring, concerned individual.br /
She was of great assistance to me with the question that I hadbr /
originally called her about./p
p Her meetings will resume in September on Wednesday nights at 8:00br /
p.m. at Sunnypark Children's Centre./p
p Now, this 42 year old is really kicking herself that she doesn't knowbr /
how to drive!/p
p Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] /p
