Our Daily Green is affiliated with The Allergy Kit
Starting in August 2013, Food and Allergy Research and Education (FARE) will be hosting a series of free educational webinars designed to help you live life well with food allergies. Each month, we will feature leading experts discussing the topics related to food allergy that you most want to hear about.
Free webinars will be recorded and later posted on our website to serve as an educational resource.
Food allergies are not only potentially life-threatening – they’re life-altering, and managing food allergies can be emotionally draining. Dr. Linda Herbert, a clinical psychologist at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., will address the common challenges of managing food allergies. The presentation will cover anxiety, issues at school, bullying, peer social activities and more. Dr. Herbert will also provide webinar attendees with a preliminary set of strategies to help cope with daily stress.
Dr. Herbert recently joined the Department of Allergy and Immunology at Children’s National Medical Center, where she is building a clinical practice and research team designed to address the mental health needs of children with food allergies and their families.
Funding for this webinar is made possible through a generous grant from Lineage Therapeutics.
