New AAFA-Affiliated Support Group Turns West Virginia Teal for Food Allergy Awareness

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Sometimes it takes just one determined mom to make a difference. Here is what one West Virginia mom did in a short amount of time to create a spectacular Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW)! Earlier this year, Robyn Clark, a community member of Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), posted about looking for help with an Easter egg hunt. One thing led to another. And pretty soon, she found enough people to form a support group, the WV Children's Allergy Alliance. The group is one of the many support...

Hi Heather, I wonder if it's like the book mentioned in this thread. That book was a promotional item offered to drs offices. Let me contact Robyn to ask about this one. In the meantime, check out our food allergy cookbook collection and our Safe Eats recipe database.

The book was donated to us by our Allergist/medical director. They weren't put into print for sale - just offered through the Dr. offices as a promotional thing. I'd love to have them all the time for use! I may look into Amazon myself to find them and buy them for when we have contests/etc for our group to give away....used or not! Or start a trading library within our group. My son and I have decided that he should do a cooking channel on Youtube for kids with food allergies -something...

Hi, Heather, Since it was a custom publication with Mylan (the maker of Epi pens), you might contact the company directly and ask if they possibly had any extra copies of that book. I know as a former PR person whose supervisor was a former pharmaceutical rep, sometimes the PR folks wind up with an extra case of something left over. Here's the contact info for Mylan.
