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.

The AAIA would also like to thank Dr. Samuel Godefroy for his informative presentation on Health Canada's Programs to Enhance the Protection of Food Allergic Consumers in Canada. Thanks to all our speakers in both the morning and afternoon for sharing their knowledge and wisdom with everyone.
Thank you to Hershey Canada for their continued support of the AAIA and for generously sponsoring a Kyle Dine music CD - "You Must be Nuts - Food Allergy Songs for Children" one for each family that attended the event with a child/children. We thoroughly enjoyed Kyle Dine’s musical performance during lunch.
