Allergies

Back to school can bring a lot of anxiety to parents of children with food allergies. As one in every 13 Canadians suffers from a significant food allergy, Dr. Christine McCusker is available to answer questions on what parents should tell their child as the school year begins.

Christine McCusker, Professor of Pediatrics, McGill University and Division Director, Pediatric Allergy, Montreal Children's Hospital, McGill University Health Center

“The most important thing for parents of children with food allergies is to make sure your child is comfortable talking about his/her allergies and that he/she knows what to do if symptoms develop.  The school also should have a plan of what to do in case  of emergency and together they should foster a team approach for allergic reaction prevention and management.”—Dr. Christine McCusker
