Hello, I started a support group called Food Allergy Awareness Parent Group in Olympia,WA. in May of 2000.I am doing a outreach blitz to increase membership and to let folks know I am here.
The purpose of this group is to educate parents of children with severe to life threatening food allergies on how to educate others,advocate for their children and make changes in programs,schools and laws re: food allergies.Group members offer mutual support through telling their stories but most impotantly by sharing what they have learned in differing situations.Several times a year we may have a action project to work on or guest speaker engagement to attend as well.
We meet once a month at the local children's museum near the State Capitol the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m.. This month we will meet on Feb.27th. Check out the Hands On Children's Museum website for details about the Food Allergy Awareness Parent Group @ [url="http://www.hocm.org."]www.hocm.org.[/url] If you or a family member need support I hope you make contact now. Thanks!
