Thanks for posting Susan.

FYI, Vancouverites, these are really smart, articulate researchers connected with the AllerGen network. Wish it wasn't so far away!

I wish we could spread out some of the allergy awareness events that are happening in May. I would have liked to have gone to a few but I'm walking that day.

There was a lot of good info tonight, and several of us MVAG members there. They recorded the talk, and said they would put the video up on their website after editing: http://www.cfri.ca
