We are looking for information about educational businesses/people which provide seminars on food allergies...

Do you know of any? (Any country)

Here is a link to the PeanutAllergy.Com Discussion Board thread where we would like
to have you post any information you know on this topic. You can also just send by e mail, or fax etc. if you would like, but posting what you know is the best way.
Click here to go to the thread to read or post: [url="http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/Forum4/HTML/000029.html"]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/Forum4/HTML/000029.html[/url]

We are looking for any information (even if you have only a lead and not specific contact information etc.) relating to people (or
businesses) who are currently in the business of speaking/educating
(who charge for their services or who volunteer their time) for example
schools, daycare etc.
(Any country, remember to specify when posting so others will know)

This is a topic we are asked often so if you are in the business
please post a reply on this thread/and or send me your information,
and if you know of someone who does this send me an e mail with
what you know so we can contact them.

We recently received a request for information on this topic from
someone who is working on a project and would like to know
information such as, what it costs etc..
If you have any information such as contact information or if you
know where to obtain brochures etc. please post what you know, or
send it in to the address below.
This particular person needs the information as soon as possible (she
would like to be able to work on her project this weekend). However
this information will help many others now and in the future so post
what you know (and discuss the topic also as always!).

Thank you in advance for working on this, if you do not currently have
any information on this topic,
please try searching the web or researching in other ways to find as
much information on those who do this type of work and post what you
find!

There are people who do this, some donate their skills (if
they are financially able to do so), and some are trying to make a
living doing it so they can continue to spread the word (awareness).

Here is part of the request e mailed us.
She is looking for
"...educational person to provide seminars on food allergies to local
schools and daycares. Any info? Did you find those brochures, mostly
I am looking for their charges and materials they provide to work...

Again, please post what you know about this topic to this thread on the PeanutAllergy.Com

this web address)

pIn Canada, there are several sources of speakers on food allergies:br /
1) Allergy Asthma Information Association. The National and Regional contact list is at [url="http://www.cadvision.com/allergy/aaia.html."]http://www.cadvision.com/allergy/aaia.html.[/url] Most talks are volunteer or for donation.br /
2) Anaphylaxis Network at [url="http://www.anaphylaxis.org."]http://www.anaphylaxis.org.[/url] Not sure about their arrangments.br /
3) In Guelph, the owner of "Nuttin With Nuts" ([url]http://www.nuttinwithnuts.com[/url]).br /
4) Informed health nurses are another source. 5) Sometimes an allergist will also do talks - especially at an allergy conference.br /
Contact your local allergy/asthma association for more contacts.br /
Hope that helps./p

pIn Canada, Public Health Nutritionists that work for various provincial public health units are available to give presentations to schools, daycares etc. Our local Nutritionist has a kit that she lends out to nurses, teachers and other educators. The kit is full of information on peanut allergies and anaphalaxys and includes video's, pamphlets, epi-pen trainers etc. There is no charge for these services as they are provided by the government.br /
Another resource is Dietitian's of Canada of which all Nutritionists are registered. In the U.S. I would try contacting the American Dietetic Association as they would have names of local Dietitians and Nutritionists who are familiar with these issues./p

pThere is book published by the Asthma Allergy Foundation of America "How To Out Smart Your Allergies" by Dr Art Ulene. He used to be a TV Personality in Los Angeles and I am sure he would still do lectures on allergies. Also if you contact the Asthma Alllergy Foundation they would help you. You can reach them at 323-937-7859. Good luck./p

pI personally do educational talks on Food Allergies using information from several sources including The Food Allergy Network. I am usually asked to present at Teachers meetings, MOMS club, I occasional do a health fair. I am not in the health profession, just a mom with kids with food allergies trying to get others educated. Email me if you have any additional questions, I will not be able to respond until Friday due to an out of state engagement./p

pHi, I just wanted to let you know that the FDA ( Food and Drug Administration ) have people available to speak about labeling and ingredients.br /
Our local Food Chain Grocery Stores have a person in charge of labeling and product ingredients in our area and he is on our board of our group and has spoke at our meetings. Maybe call and ask about speakers from your local food store that are some of the larger chains.br /
We are currently having a Food Allergy Basics Program a 4 hr program helping support our group is our local Red Cross, They along with FAAST ( Food Allergy Awareness, Support, and Training) are sponsoring this meeting. FAAST is my local group I am a member of.br /
I hope this helps. Call FAN ( Food Allergy Network) ask for information for Food Allergy Awarenss Week and they will send you information on how to get the word out and facts about allergies everyone needs to know. And the new PAL Program ( Protect A Life) Be a Pal. A great new program for children.br /
Best Regards,br /
Lana ( mother of peanut allergic child)/p
