Peanut and Tree Nut Survey

Just came across this on the PeanutAllergy.com site and wanted to highlight it here:

Peanut and Tree Nut Allergy Surveys

FAAN and researchers from the University of Michigan Food Allergy Center are conducting three surveys regarding allergic reactions to peanut and/or tree nuts.

We are seeking individuals with allergies to peanuts and/or tree nuts, or parents or guardians of children who are allergic to peanuts and/or tree nuts, to provide information about past reactions. Of primary interest are reactions that have occurred on commercial aircraft, in a school or childcare facility, or as a result of food provided by a restaurant or other food establishment. Those individuals who have had reactions occurring in more than one of these settings are eligible to participate in as many of the surveys as are applicable.

Luckily, we haven't had a reaction in any of these situations (actually at all) since Bella's diagnosis, so I don't have anything to add to the surveys. But if you or your child have, take a minute and help these researchers out.

Every little bit of data helps!
