Tuesday, April 5, 7-9pm 2016  Ask the Allergist and LEAP Study update

 Come out and join us to hear from Dr Anastasios Papadopoulos of the Toronto Allergy Group. He’ll discuss the findings of the LEAP (Learning Early About Peanut) study which looked at how to prevent peanut allergies in young children.  Then we’ll open it up to the group – a fantastic chance to ask your questions about asthma, allergies and anaphylaxis to a leading Canadian allergist.  

Tuesday, May 31, 7-9pm 2016 Explaining allergies to kids

Have you struggled with how to explain the seriousness of allergies to your child, without causing undue anxiety?  And as kids get older and face new challenges as pre-teens and teenagers, wouldn’t it be helpful to hear from someone who’s been there?  Paula-Jane Bellizzi is an allergy therapist, and mom to a teen with allergies.  As a qualified social worker, Paula-Jane helps families in her practice as an allergy consultant, to deal with the ups and downs of life with allergies.  In this talk, she’ll share her expertise on speaking about allergies with kids and the kinds of situations and questions that may arise, with advice on best practices to manage effectively.  Be sure to join us to strengthen your toolkit as a parent and hear about how to raise a confident and competent child with allergies.


Membership and Location

Membership in TAEG starts every year in September.  We have secured new meeting space this year which has allowed us to suspend our membership fees (normally $20 per family pro-rated, for up to two adults to attend all five meetings from September to June, or individual entry per meeting is $5), so for our 2015/16 season there is no cost to attend.

NEW LOCATION:  Our meetings will be held at Edithvale Community Centre, 131 Finch Avenue West, near Yonge and Finch.  We’ll have a membership desk to welcome you. Parking is available and nearest TTC bus stop is at Finch Ave West and Carney Road.  Click here for full details on the location and TTC directions.
