FAAM's highlight for April is the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT), who recently recognized us as an educational support group. Thank you FAACT!
Each month, FAAM is going to highlight a resource or product, something helpful for food allergy individuals and families. To begin, we want to highlight resources for newly diagnosed individuals and families. For most of us, receiving a food allergy diagnosis is scary and confusing. It comes out of nowhere; we have no idea what to do with the information received at the time of diagnosis and never mind the additional confusion when we type the words “food allergy” in Google’s search box, look out! Not only are there a ton of results, but many of them contain misinformation. We have no idea where to start or what information we can depend on to be accurate.
Food for Thought is the blog for the Food Allergy Alliance of the MidSouth. FAAM's mission is to provide food allergy support, education, advocacy, fellowship & fun for Memphis, TN and surrounding areas.
If you have a medical emergency, call 911 immediately and follow up with a physician.
