Check out this link to the Food Allergy Network's site for upcoming conferences on living with food allergies. They look like they'll be informative.

<p>Mary Kay, thanks for reminding us about the FAN Conferences and providing their site address! </p>
<p>To enroll for FAN's annual conference call 1-800-929-4040. </p>
<p>The conferences by FAN are very informative! It is a wonderful chance for us to hear and ask questions about the peanut allergy and research efforts. It also provides a chance to network and meet other parents.</p>
<p>I also am a active member of FAN and am very grateful for all of their efforts on our behalf!</p>

My husband and I will be at the Baltimore conference for the second year in a row. It was worth every penny last year. the handouts from that conference have become my allergy bible. It was wonderful to hear about the latest research from the folks who are actually conducting it! I met a woman last year who had attended 5 annual FAN conferences. Even though some of the conference is a review of the basics, she said she thought that it was a good thing for all parents of allergic children to hear a review of that information on at least an annual basis. Last year, at the luncheon, they seated us by state so that you could network with others from your area. Question for Patti and Chris: Will FAN mention or otherwise promote peanutallergy.com at the conferences?

Hi Patti,
I called today to enroll in the Stamford meeting and its already full. I am so upset. I was really looking forward to it. They do have a waiting list though. Good Luck.

Jan, thanks for the tip. I just called and they told me the same thing. I can't believe I waited. She said she just started the waiting list yesterday. She's not telling me we have a good chance but they have had cancellations in the past. the list so far is short so lets keep our fingers crossed, and hopefully I'll see you there.
P.S. They have 48 hours to cancel so we would at least have 2 days notice. Sometimes she said people cancel before that.

Jan - The Food Allergy Network called me today and I am in at Stamford. I hope you got a call too. If not you should call them since it seems like they have more openings.
