Anaphylaxis Canada is proud to announce the launch of our Why Risk It? Teen Video Series.

This project is one of the key initiatives undertaken by our Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) which is made up of 23 teens and young adults from across the country, ranging in age from 15 to 23 years. This group is responsible for providing input and direction on our youth program, which is geared towards offering resources and support to our most at-risk group for anaphylaxis: pre-teens, teens, and young adults.

The Teen Video Series is a collection of five short clips dealing with common social situations faced by teens:

•Dating with Food Allergies
•Food Allergies and High School
•Dining Out with Food Allergies
•Eating Safely with Food Allergies
•Travelling with Food Allergies
These videos serve as a dynamic resource for the community, including students, families, friends and educators and can be found on our youth website www.whyriskit.ca and YouTube.

Anaphylaxis Canada announced the launch of the video series today. See our social media release:

To view these videos directly, please visit Anaphylaxis Canada's new YouTube channel:

We would like to thank the entire YAP team for their hard work and dedication to the development of these videos. Anaphylaxis Canada would also like to acknowledge the generous support and funding from TD Securities and the Annual Sean Delaney Memorial Golf Classic for this initiative.

Please feel free to share this information with others who would be interested in this exciting new resource.

Love these videos! What a great approach: it's all about being proactive. I especially like the one about travelling. As someone who has been lucky enough to travel a lot, I agree with what they say in the video. As long as you plan ahead and go prepared, your allergies don't have to stop you from seeing the world. Two thumbs up :thumbsup :thumbsup
