PASCACK VALLEY, NJ FOOD ALLERGY SUPPORT GROUP MEETING

PASCACK VALLEY FOOD ALLERGY SUPPORT GROUP MEETING/ ALLERGY-FREE CHILDREN’S HALLOWEEN PARTY

Food Allergy is the leading cause of severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis, and up to 8% of children and 2% of adults are estimated to have food allergies in the U.S. Caring for a child with a food allergy can be overwhelming and difficult for many families. Children with food allergies often encounter problems at school and have trouble socializing with others.

Food Allergy Support Groups provide educational, emotional, and practical resources and support for these patients and their families, as well as raising community awareness. An organizational meeting of a local Pascack Valley Food Allergy Support Group combined with an Allergy Free Children’s Halloween Party will be held on October 25, 2008 (Saturday) from 2-5 PM. For further information, please call Dr. de Asis or Dr. Pistiner at Allergy and Asthma Consultants of Rockland and Bergen at (201) 666-8500.
