Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America hosted a free educational webinar on June 17, 2014 featuring guest speakers Matthew Greenhawt, MD, MMSc, and Laurel Francoeur, JD. The presentation below covers legal restrictions, disability issues, TSA regulations, peanut dust and inhalation studies, and how to prevent allergic reactions on airplanes.
We received hundreds of questions during the meeting, and our speakers have agreed to respond in follow-up blog posts. Be sure to follow our blog so you can receive more information about flying with food allergies.
An attendee gave this review as the most valuable part of the webinar:
“The tips for flying reaffirmed for me that I am doing everything possible to keep my 5-year-old safe. All of the information on inhalation and peanut shell dust was wonderful and will make us feel much safer when faced with that environment.”
