I’ll be in Tarrytown on May 9, 2009 for my first food allergy conference sponsored by FAAN.
If you’re there too, let me know!
Press release from FAAN:
FAAN’s conferences offer insight on the most recent research findings about food allergy as well as discussion and networking opportunities with families, caregivers, teachers, child care providers, and school staff. Special sessions are also held for teens, nurses, and registered dietitians.
Topics at the all-day conference also include strategies for avoiding reactions, how to eat well with food allergies, emergency preparedness, tips for dining out with food allergies, and lessons learned from reactions in schools.
In Tarrytown, Dr. Hugh Sampson, a nationally respected leader in the field of allergy research, will be a featured speaker. Sampson is a professor of pediatrics and immunobiology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and chief of the Division of Allergy & Immunology in the Department of Pediatrics, Director of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute, and Dean of Translational Biomedical Science at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
“The FAAN Conference is one of the best resources for the latest information on food allergy,” Sampson said. “Everyone, from the newly diagnosed to the seasoned veteran, will walk away with a better understanding of dealing with food allergies.”
The Tarrytown conference will run from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and will be held at the Westchester Marriott, 670 White Plains Road.
