If you are a parent of a child with food allergies you know how important and how tough it is to properly educate family, friends and teachers on this subject. Children who suffer from food allergies need to feel they are protected by their families, but also they must fully understand themselves the seriousness of their condition to properly navigate their food surroundings: birthday parties, school cafeteria, sleepovers, movie theaters, vacations, etc.
At Florida Center For Allergy & Asthma Care we are committed to our patients’ well-being and thorough education in order to avert dangerous circumstances for allergy and asthma sufferers. We proudly announce we are now the exclusive host of Support Group for Parents of Kids with Food Allergy, in both Miami-Dade and Broward counties, in collaboration with Baptist Health Outpatient Services. These support groups will be held the 1st Saturday of every month beginning on March 3rd, 2012 in the Baptist Children’s Diagnostic Center @ Country Walk (Miami-Dade); and beginning April 7th in the Baptist Medical Plaza @ Pembroke Pines (Broward). ** NOTE: please be advised these support groups are no longer available as of December 31,2012.
This is a free service to the community so come and spend an hour with our own Dr. Ileana Rodicio and Dr. Sharlene Llanes to receive vital information, tips, suggestions and exchange ideas with other food allergy families. Everyone is invited, so spread the word!
