Raising Awareness About Food Allergies on Campus
For some students, food allergies represent a life-threatening hazard to their health. If your allergy doctor has diagnosed you with a severe food allergy, then watch this video to see how Yale is raising awareness on campus.
Yale Dining uses several mechanisms to make it easier for individuals with food allergies to navigate their meals. For example, at each dining hall entrance, students find meal boards featuring graphics that indicate the major allergens that are in each dish. However, last-minute recipe changes and cross-contamination remain a concern for food allergy sufferers, highlighting the importance of self-advocacy and raising awareness.
At Allergy & Asthma Specialists℠, our team of board-certified allergy doctors offers testing for food allergies in Collegeville, Philadelphia, Pottstown, Doylestown, Lansdale, Jenkintown, Blue Bell, or King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
