Maybe you're an allergic individual or allergy parent who wants to advocate on a larger scale? Or perhaps you're interested in learning more about what a food allergy consultant or allergy-informed therapist does and how to become one?
Gina Mennett Lee, M.Ed. and I discuss food allergy advocacy, consulting and counseling, paying special attention to not burning yourself out, especially as an advocate. We offer tips on recognizing burnout, determining your own boundaries, prioritizing your advocacy efforts based on your own values, referring people to others when needed, and prioritizing a balanced approach so you don't neglect areas of your life just to advocate in another one. We also share common questions we get about our roles as a food allergy consultant and allergy-informed therapist.
Enjoy a game of "Who You Gonna Call" which identifies which allergy professional is best to reach out to in various situations. Additionally, we highlight the need to appreciate/show gratitude for those providing resources/making changes within the allergy community so they feel valued.
