Learning about the doc behind the mic
“I'm an allergist, but I'm not your allergist…” I love when my patients recite this back to me (and then say, “But, Dr. Hoyt, I laugh because you actually are my allergist!). This means they've been listening to this show!
And that's exactly why I do this. I started this blog and podcast to provide families, my patients and beyond, with access to evidence-based information about food allergy that is easy to understand and presented in a positive, uplifting, encouraging way.
Behind the scenes with me, Dr. Alice Hoyt
When my amazing cohost and dear friend Pam brought up the idea of finishing out our first season with an interview of me, I thought it was the right thing to do! So many of you write in to me, so I wanted to give you a little more insight into who I am and why I do this.
So tune into this episode in which Pam interviews me, Dr. Alice Hoyt.

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?
