Tuesday, September 27, 7-9pm: Food Labelling and more
TAEG is thrilled to welcome Marilyn Allen as our guest speaker.  Marilyn brings a wealth of knowledge across many areas of allergy management.  As one of the founding members of the group that started Food Allergy Canada, she has worked to improve the lives of families in Canada for more than 20 years. In this interactive and informative session, Marilyn will share an overview of food labelling in Canada, as well as labelling internationally – a great opportunity to learn how to identify safe food at home and while travelling. Marilyn will also share an update on food service allergy management to help us in eating out safely. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from a very warm and engaging speaker with deep expertise in allergy management Click here to register
