I hope that everyone has a good, safe and adventurous year. That's what I want. And I know with a kid going off to college the adventure is built in.
Note that FAAN has worked hard on standardizing food allergy diagnoses and “Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States” was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. in early December. yay.
This means that in California or Michigan food allergies will be diagnosed and deal with in the same way. This might even mean more physicians will understand the management of food allergies and certainly this article will have an impact on how allergists outside the big food allergy hospitals will help their patients. I think it's great and a strong step forward for education.
