Food Allergy Blogger's Conference 2014!

I'm thrilled to attend the Food Allergy Blogger's Conference (#FABlogCon) for the 2nd year in a row! Last year was truly a life-changing event for me, catalyzing many lasting, meaningful relationships across our food allergy community. The mutual understanding, support, and camaraderie of virtual friends meeting face-to-face was overwhelming in the best way possible for an introvert like me!

Look for me on Saturday morning at the break-out session on evidence-based blogging with Veronica LaFemina and Anna Luke from Food Allergy Research and Education (aka, FARE) and Henry Ehrlich, editor of Asthma Allergies Children and author of Food Allergies: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Science, and a Search for a Cure.

We hope to give lots of great advice and useful tips on blogging with integrity about food allergy science and discovery! I'll be leading the discussion on honest headlines and examining your personal bias. After all, how many times have you been frustrated by a misleading headline when it comes to food allergy research?!

If you can't make it, then please, please, please find me later and introduce yourself. I'm looking forward to meeting friends new and old (I'll be sure to give you one of my "business" post cards straight from Oregon!).

AND, if you can't make it to the conference, please follow along virtually on Twitter using the hashtag #FABlogCon. Selena at Amazing and Atopic did a wonderful job of explaining and providing a view of the Twitter feed, no Twitter account required!

See you soon!

  1. Did my comment not go through? Wonderful to have seen you again this year at the show!

  2. Thank you, Alisa! Likewise! Until next year... :)

  3. Congrats! I couldn't attend the conference, unfortunately. It sounds like it was a great one. I get all of my information about allergies from blogs these days. The recipes alone are worth it.

  4. I am trying to find more information on food allergy's in order to help my husband. he is gluten intolerant and it is hard to feed him sometimes. It seems like everything he eats hurts him though, I am wondering if he is allergic to soy or something as well. Maybe I need to take him to a specialist.

  6. I seem to be allergic to carrots. Every time I eat them my ears start to itch. It's kind of weird, and I hadn't noticed it until a couple months ago. Can ears itch with a food allergy.

  7. Thanks for sharing this post.Food allergy is a big problem and I think dairy products are also responsible for it.
