You have probably heard many stories and many opinions about the emerging epidemic of food allergies. Here is your opportunity to hear a brief presentation and then have a question and answer session with two professionals who have been active in the food allergy community for years. Exactly what are food allergies? Why do some allergic people seem to need more protection than others? What can you do to order safely in a restaurant if you have a food allergy?
Christine and Chef Dominque look forward to responding to these questions and more!
This event is presented by:
Christine Szychlinski, MS, APN-PC, Manager of the Bunning Food Allergy Program at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
Dominique Tougne, professional Chef, Chez Moi in Chicago and La Voûte in Homewood, and father of two children with severe allergies. Chef Tougne was instrumental in raising awareness for food allergies and helped implement training for employees of Levy Restaurant Group.
The Food Allergies: where medical science and food science meet at the family table event has concluded. Thanks to everyone for attending!
