This time of year for your kiddo with food allergy is already stressful.
Plus, add COVID-19 to the stress of back-to-school, and heavens to Betsy… Where to begin?
Here’s a checklist to help you be prepared!
I have been receiving many questions about back-to-school during COVID-19 and how to navigate pandemic-associated school changes in the context of food allergy. To help families navigate this issue, I created a food allergy back-to-school checklist to guide your planning.
Tune in to the podcast to learn more about the back-to-school checklist!
Additional Show Notes
I have talked about a non-profit…
The non-profit is The Teal Schoolhouse, whose primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Our primary program is the Code Ana School Program, which is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. This program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. This is one of the most important components of a school’s food allergy policy!
A medical emergency response plan is important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program, and Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary). Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
