Date:3/24/2008

FAIRFAX, Va., March 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) will hold its 15th annual Food Allergy Conference in Baltimore, Md., on March 29, 2008. Many families struggle with how best to manage food allergies in their lives. Whether attendees have been living with food allergies for years or are dealing with a new diagnosis, this conference will help.

Conference attendees will learn tips and strategies for living better while managing food allergies. Topics will include causes and symptoms of food-allergic reactions, how food allergies should be diagnosed, strategies for avoiding reactions, how and when to use epinephrine, tips for managing food allergies in schools, ways to prepare a child to manage food allergies, and the latest news on food allergy research.

"There is no cure for food allergy today," said Anne Munoz-Furlong, FAAN Founder and CEO. "Until there is a cure, education is the key to avoiding a reaction. This unique conference brings together hundreds of individuals for a full day of the latest information on living with food allergies."

Anyone who has a food allergy or takes care of someone with a food allergy will benefit from attending. In particular, parents, grandparents, and relatives of children with food allergies, as well as health professionals, registered dietitians, caregivers, child care providers, and school staff, will find the sessions informative.

The Baltimore conference will feature Robert A. Wood, M.D. He is a professor of pediatrics and international health and the director of pediatric allergy and immunology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, as well as the author of Food Allergies for Dummies.

There are even special sessions for teens (ages 11 and up) and nurses at the conference. The teen lunch session will include discussion topics such as school, dating, traveling, and dining out. A concurrent session for parents of teens will
