Webinar: The physical and emotional side of severe allergic reactions: youth session
August 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
A severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) can bring on different physical symptoms and emotions. Join us for an insightful and interactive webinar on this topic aimed at youth/young adults.
- Who is presenting: Dr. Julia Upton, Canadian allergist, and a panel of four youth with food allergy who are currently attending high school or post-secondary school. Kyle Dine, food allergy educator and leader of our youth programs, will be moderating. This will be an interactive webinar where the majority of the time will be spent answering your questions.
- What you’ll learn: What happens to your body during an allergic reaction, the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, and the emergency treatment. You’ll also hear how the youth panel managed their allergic reactions and overcame barriers in using epinephrine auto-injectors.
- When is the webinar: Wednesday, August 19 from 12pm-1pm EDT
- Who should attend: This is a must-attend session for youth with food allergy. Parents, caregivers, and others who are interested in this topic are also welcome to attend.
