Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) will be held on May 8-14, 2011. LAN is involved in promoting food allergy awareness and one way we do so is by holding a fund raiser during FAAW. Last year it was held in the Lansdowne town center by the Go Banana's Toy Store. The owner has generously donated her storefront area (side walk) again this year. The date of our event will be on Sunday, May 15.
_The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) hosts a yearly conference about food allergies. This year it will be held in Baltimore, MD. For the first time, FAAN will stagger it's location from year to year. Next year it will be held in New Jersey. For those in the Metro-DC area, this is the year you should attend.
_Debbie Finkel, a Brookline, Massachusetts attorney and mother, became concerned when her eighteen month old toddler bit into a pastry and broke out in hives during a family trip to Florida. A visit to a specialist revealed several allergies: all tree nuts, sesame, shell fish, and chick peas. Thus SafeKeepers was born.
