The AAIA Ontario conference held October 21 in Ottawa featured many exciting medical speakers and interactive workshops. Sessions were featured in both English and French thanks to simultaneous translation provided by Health Canada.

Thank you to Karen Eck, the Ottawa Anaphylaxis Support Group, and everyone who helped with the Ontario Family Conference.

Our medical speakers were absolutely great – Dr. Charles Frankish, Dr. Rhoda Kagan and Dr. Antony Ham Pong.

We thank everyone for the up-to-date information that they conveyed to the attendees and also for their insights, their dedication and their support.
