Special OASG Youth Meeting: Allergy Talk – Teens Tell It Like It Is

Got severe allergies? Get in the know with an afternoon of discussion and advice for teens and young adults at risk of anaphylaxis.

Sponsored by the Ottawa Anaphylaxis Support Group, this session will give participants a great opportunity to hang out with others who share similar thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Topics such as allergies with respect to dating, high school, travel, lack of understanding from others, and much more, will be moderated by Kyle Dine of Anaphylaxis Canada. Kyle has severe food allergies himself, so he knows what teens with allergies are going through. He’ll also be providing an update on allergy research that you won’t want to miss!

WHERE: Pinecrest Chapters – in the Community Room
(Pinecrest Shopping Centre, 2735 Iris Street, Ottawa, ON)

WHEN: Sunday, February 8, 2009 from 2-4 pm

WHO: Anyone with allergies (anaphylaxis), aged 13-25!

RESERVE YOUR SPOT! Space is limited, so make sure you reserve a spot by contacting Karen at karen@ottawaasg.com or 819-778-2562 by Saturday, February 7.

If you would like to help us advertise, you can download our posterand put it up where teens and young adults will see it!

Thanks!

Karen

Thanks Susan. I'm really happy that Kyle is able to come up to Ottawa to help us out. Fingers crossed that it's just the beginning of more activities for teens in our area.
