How Do Families Cope with Food Allergies?

Posted Mar 26 2010 12:00am
National Jewish Health® has received a $450,000 grant from the National Institute of Health to study how families cope with food allergy.

Available data suggest that half of parents with food-allergic children experience a pervasive fear for their child's safety, and a sizable subgroup restrict normal child and family activities because of food allergies. Others do not appreciate the potential severity of a food-allergy reaction and are casual about their precautions and preparations.

Check out this information on the grant.

Anyone interested in participating in this trial (open to families with children between ages 6-12) can call National Jewish Health® at 303-398-1006 for more information.
