Living With Food Allergies

Flying with Food Allergies: Legal and Medical Concerns

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA), a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, hosted a free educational webinar on June 17, 2014 featuring guest speakers Matthew Greenhawt, MD, MMSc, and Laurel Francoeur, JD. The presentation below covers legal restrictions, disability issues, TSA regulations, peanut dust and inhalation studies, and how to prevent allergic reactions on airplanes.

An attendee gave this review as the most valuable part of the webinar:

“The tips for flying reaffirmed for me that I am doing everything possible to keep my 5-year-old safe. All of the information on inhalation and peanut shell dust was wonderful and will make us feel much safer when faced with that environment.”
