IPUL's E-News for July 16, 2021
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
Food Allergies K-12: Your Rights and Responsibilities
Have you wondered what your rights are as a person managing food allergy? Or what your responsibilities are when serving the food allergy community? Join us for the first webinar in FARE’s free six-part webinar series on patient rights to examine the rights and responsibilities that parents and schools have when it comes to children with food allergies in grades K-12. Hear practical advice on navigating the system and learn how children with food allergies face unique challenges posed by COVID-19. 

Registration is FREE, and all registrants will receive a recording of the webinar.

Please send questions in advance to Karie Mulkowsky at kmulkowsky@foodallergy.org
