This will be a solutions-oriented discussion on handling the anxiety and feelings of isolation that can come with managing food allergies. Food allergies impose stress on the whole family - the caregivers, siblings and child - from the first reaction to the day-to-day management. This session will highlight the difference between a normal stress response and clinical anxiety, will caution families against "admiring the problem" and advise when professional help is warranted, and provide tips for coping to protect well-being.  Join Kristen Kauke, Lori Sandler, and Dr. Ruchi Gupta to talk about how it's going for you and to learn and share ways to make sure allergies don't define your kids or your family .

Please Note: The time of this session was previously 10:30 AM and has been changed to 9:00 AM. Please adjust your personalized schedule, accordingly, if needed.
