UPDATE: Food Allergy Week 2020

As many of you know, the challenges of the COVID-19 health crisis has led to us changing the awareness raising activities we had planned for Food Allergy Week in 2020. 

In late March, we let you know we will not be progressing with an extensive awareness raising campaign through the general media this year. Despite this, we will continue to raise awareness of food allergy management in the best way we can during Food Allergy Week, just as we do generally throughout the year.

Throughout Food Allergy Week (24-30 May) we will be sharing new and informative resources with you via social media. We will also be hosting two live webinars where Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia CEO,  Maria Said and Jody Aiken, Health Management Educator, will answer questions you may have on food allergy management. The sessions are FREE to attend, however you will need to register via links at below.

Food Allergy Week as we have known it to be for almost 20 years will be back in full in 2021. Let’s make the most of our awareness raising through our restricted Food Allergy Week 2020 activities!
