So helpful and informative

We've been dealing with my sons food allergies, eczema, and asthma for 7 years and I thought I had a pretty good grasp of things, but I learned so much just from the first couple podcasts. Looking forward to listening to the whole series. Highly recommended!

Fantastic

I’ve learnt so much from listening to this podcast. The discussion of the science partnered with the practical management aspects have really helped me to recalibrate how I manage the risks of my toddler’s food allergy. It’s filled in a lot of gaps that were missing post a brief diagnosis and discussion with our allergist. I wanted to cry when I heard how hard Dr Katie Allen is working to get VITAL adopted - this would be so valuable to families managing allergies and so frustrating it’s not being adopted. How can we as consumers help?

This is gold

This podcast series has really helped me get my head around how to manage my son’s food allergy - it was all a bit of a blur when we left the specialist clinic after first getting the diagnosis. Thank you MCRI and the AllergyPal app is great too.
