Many years ago, Meg gave a talk to the OASG and over the years has had many clients who suffer from life threatening allergies. She herself has a son who is anaphylactic to nuts and she knows first hand how difficult and anxiety provoking it can be for families when a child has a life threatening allergy.
Meg is offering to meet with us on September 12, 2017 and will present a slide show and facilitate a discussion with OASG members. To make the evening useful as well as informative, she is prepared to answer individual questions from OASG members about their children and particular situations that may be challenging for members. To make the evening more successful, we are asking that members think ahead about particular questions that they would like to ask Meg and send them in an email to Stephanie Lore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
