This interactive session will be led by Dr. Paul Bryce, a scientist working in food allergy research, and is aimed at helping to educate patients and family members about the biology behind food allergy.

Do you know how the current treatments work? By the end of this session, participants should have a clearer understanding of the biology of food allergy, as well as the terms and treatments used by their doctors and researchers.
