For an upcoming issue of Allergic Living we're looking to profile schools and teachers who really "get" food allergies and go the distance to keep allergic kids safe.

These are the folks who are an inspiration and deserve recognition. If you'd like to nominate your child's school and/or teacher, send us a note at editor@allergicliving.com. Tell us what makes the school or teacher a great support to food-allergic students.

Great idea! We love our school. I'll think about it and reply to the email listed.

I love this Gwen. There is such a NEED to focus on the good as I swear some days my brain wants to explode from the sad, negative situations. All things we need to know/read/learn to help our kids stay safe, but draining and exhausting all the same. Thanks for looking at the positive and taking the time to focus on those who DO care enough to selflessly accommodate . :thumbsup :banana

I don't know of a school that would stand out although there are some who do certain things that are really good. Let us know if you dont' get enough response to the great schools and we can provide some decent ones :swing

We've shifted the focus to be on the individuals - the School Heroes (as we've dubbed them) who go the distance. Getting a lot of great response.

The stories are encouraging, inspiring. I think you guys are going to love this feature.

Re focusing on the positive, thx Michelle. That's what I feel, too.

Hi folks,

We've got a number of great nominations for our "School Heroes" feature, but just wanted to say: last call!
If you still haven't got a nomination in, pls. do it by tomorrow.

Here are the details:

Food Allergy School Heroes

Do you know a teacher or principal or school nurse who is a true hero to food-allergic students, a person who goes "above and beyond" to make sure they are safe at school? Then please nominate that special person for Allergic Living magazine's upcoming "School Heroes" feature article.

Allergic Living wants to hear briefly:
- Who is this special person?
- What is it that she or he does that is unique in making food-allergic students safer and more included at school?

E-mail: editor@allergicliving.com
Pls. write in the subject field: School allergy hero
Mention your city/prov in the text
