Community Educational Forum: Food Allergies
On May 8, 2008, FACT and AAPS (Ann Arbor Public Schools) presented a forum for the Ann Arbor community to discuss and learn about food allergies.
This event was co-hosted by the AAPS and the Food Allergy Children's Team, and made possible by a grant from the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) for raising awareness about food allergies.
