Resources for Healthcare Professionals

We can help you better support your patients with food allergies. Just tell them about us, and we’ll take it from there.

We provide individuals with food allergies with the support, education, and resources they need so they can manage their food allergies more confidently.

Let your patients know that we are here to help them through their journey!



Patient resource: Information sheets

You told us, and we listened. We surveyed the healthcare professional sector to ask what resources you need to support your patients with food allergy. From there, we developed six downloadable and printable resource sheets exclusively for you to share with your patients. The information contained in these sheets has been medically reviewed by Dr. Julia Upton, MD, FRCP(C) Clinical Immunology and Allergy.

If there is an additional topic you would like covered, please let us know at info@foodallergycanada.ca.
