Fifteen million people in the United States have a food allergy. On average you will find two students per classroom that have food allergies. This week, our topic is food allergy awareness to commemorate food allergy awareness month. Our guest host, Calli Brielle McIntyre, is Miss Moore County’s Outstanding Teen, and a food allergy sufferer herself. Her panel includes 10 year old Xander Flowe, a homeschooled student with 8 food allergies, Tiffany Kramer, a first grade teacher at Vass-Lakeview Elementary and a mother of a child with a food allergy, and Hershal Smith, pharmacist and co-owner of The Village Apothecary. Xander is one of the most articulate and courageous young men you will ever listen to. His stories and recollections paint the most vivid word pictures about the devasting adjustments people afflicted with food allegies have to make. Together, they have an informative conversation on how people can better educate themselves on this growing occurrence.
