Where, under one roof, can you connect with food allergy friends, eat food allergy safe foods, learn about anaphylaxis from experts, dive into food allergy recipe development, discuss how to advocate for yourself or child and, if blogging is your cup of tea, learn some fabulous tricks of the trade regarding social media and even self publishing? Of course, at the inaugural Food Allergy Bloggers Conference to be held this November 2-4, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV at the food allergy savvy South Point Casino Resort! The conference will offer two tracks: one for bloggers with related blogging topics and one for those seeking information regarding Disease Management. After you register, you are invited to contact Chef Keith Norman, executive chef for the South Point Casino Resort, who will help provide food allergy safe meals-sweet!

Connecting and being part of a nation wide community
Kicking off the event will be the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference Early Bird Special on a lovely Saturday morning, November 2, 2013! I will have a booth at the walk and will also be a panelist at the conference and am truly looking forward to enjoying both. I’m incredibly excited to connect and to be surrounded by my fellow food allergy types. I’m actually even more thrilled to hang out with Colette, Henry, Selena, Lynda, Elizabeth, Alisa, Ritesh and the list goes on and on. These are all amazing people who not only move our food allergy world in the right direction, but who I look to for advice, laughs and sanity.
