Loudoun Allergy Network is a volunteer support group for families living in Loudoun County, Virginia managing IgE-mediated food allergies. The groups' focus is on school advocacy, social strategies, life tips, products and sharing recipes. Connecting with others give members comfort, knowing they are not alone.
Managing anaphylaxis is a difficult process. After diagnosis of a food allergy, many parents feel overwhelmed. LAN members share experiences and provide practical advice.
We educate our families and the local community about living with IgE-mediated food allergies. LAN provides resources through various platforms. In group meeting, guest speakers give presentations on food allergies and other anaphylaxis related topics. Members participate in fundraising activities to support outreach and medial research.
We work with various national organizations, the Loudoun County Public School, and with the Loudoun County Government to promote awareness of IgE-mediated food allergies. LAN is committed to increasing awareness and advocating for a safer environment.
Thanks to the LAN School Action Group, I was able to obtain an IHCP and 504 Plan that fit my child's individual needs. I learned that there were more accommodations available to my child than I originally thought. Thank you!
