Food Allergy Awareness Organization Seeks to Honor Advocates; Deadline for Nominations Is Feb. 1, 2002

 

 (SafetyAlerts) - Food allergies cause 30,000 emergency room visits and up to 200 deaths each year. Education, awareness, and cooperation are key for avoiding these tragedies. Do you know someone who has done an outstanding job educating others about food allergies, which affect between 6-7 million adults and children? Someone who has volunteered their personal or professional time to create food allergy awareness programs, either in a school or child care setting, camp, restaurant or elsewhere? If so, nominate that person for a Mariel C. Furlong Award for Making a Difference.

This prestigious national award, sponsored by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), recognizes leaders among educators, health professionals, and communities. Past winners include teachers, scout leaders, and doctors.

The nomination deadline for the sixth annual Mariel C. Furlong Awards is Feb. 1, 2002. For more information visit the FAAN website -- http://www.foodallergy.org/MCF/mcf.html -- or call 800-929-4040.
