Free Food Allergy Education Program at the Children’s Hospital, Winnipeg

The Children’s Allergy & Asthma Centre at the Children’s Hospital, Winnipeg, will be offering its new food allergy education program for 7-11 years old and their parents again this fall. This is a FREE program for families.

The dates to choose from are:
• Wednesday, October 16th & 23rd 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm OR
• Saturday, November 16th & 23rd 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Children and parents will meet separately in small groups. Children will learn about food allergy management through games and activities. Parents will discuss the same topics with a focus on educating and supporting the child.

The first week includes the basics of allergen avoidance, reaction recognition and response to reactions. The second week is focused on food allergy stress, communication, schools and other environments.

To find out more or to register, contact the Centre at 204-787-2551 or email caec@hsc.mb.ca. Sign up as soon as possible, as space is limited.

The Children’s Allergy & Asthma Centre is looking forward to having more families take part and help evaluate this new resource.
