Winnipeg: What’s New at the Children’s Allergy and Asthma Education Centre

June 5, 2016

CAAEC The Children’s Allergy and Asthma Education Centre (CAAEC) at the Children’s Hospital HSC in Winnipeg is a hub of education and support for families living with asthma and food allergy.  The CAAEC provides education programs for families, children and teens with asthma and food allergy. Here is some of what’s new at CAAEC this summer.

Food Allergy Information for Grandparents
This evening seminar on June 23 is led by pediatric allergist Dr. A. Becker. It provides information for grandparents of children with food allergies in an informal and open environment. For information, please call Nancy at 204-787-2353 or email caec@hsc.mb.ca
