– How old does my child need to be to self-carry an epinephrine auto-injector or asthma inhaler at school?

– Is a food allergy emergency care plan good enough?

– What can I do about pets or other allergens or asthma triggers in the classroom? On the school campus?

– How should food allergy bullying be addressed?
