New Course Helps Providers Champion Allergy Prevention

Peanut Allergy Prevention through Early Introduction – a new online Pedialink CE course from the American Academy of Pediatrics – is available free to healthcare providers who work with young infants.
“Studies of pediatricians, in particular, continue to show a gap between what they know about preventing food allergies and what they are doing to encourage new parents to act,” explained Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, LD. “This course directly addresses the most common barriers and equips providers to answer tough questions.” 
The course takes a little more than one hour to complete, and introduces participants to some of the nation’s leading pediatric allergists through short videos that offer coaching and support.  Peanut Allergy Prevention through Early Introduction is available for credit for pediatricians and most other allied health care providers – though the content is so important a number of parents, medical students and allergy advocates have also completed it.
