Most children get to focus on homework, sports, and spending time with friends, but for those with a peanut allergy, they must be constantly alert to the dangers everyday activities can pose.

To drive awareness of its increasing prevalence, Cracking the Code on Peanut Allergies brings together leaders in the field to explore the complexities of food allergy studies, the psycho-social effects on young patients and their caregivers, and how healthcare professionals can better treat these patients amid the limitations of current diagnosis and management practices.
