Last Chance to Register for Part 3! Counseling for Food Allergies in Adults | Presented by Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, LD | Wednesday, February 5, 2020, from 2–3 PM EST | Earn 1 CEU
Once thought to be relatively rare, a recent survey has shown that prevalence of food allergies in adulthood may be over 10% in the U.S. Yet, in the same survey, a full 20% claimed to have a food allergy. The adult-onset food allergic patient requires similar education to the child, but in a very different way because the adult patient is wholly responsible for his/her needs. At the same time, they also may need help with the emotional and psychological part of living with food allergies, as they can no longer live as they once had.

In the final part of this three-part webinar series, on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, from 2–3 PM Sherry Coleman Collins, MS, RDN, LD, will discuss how the RDN can help clients learn to manage risk around social settings, intimacy and dating, and understand the keys to reducing the risk of food allergies in their offspring, in addition to the obvious food preparation and cooking skills. The RDN can also be a source of referral for additional important services, such as support groups or psychological services.

Learning Objectives
1. Direct parents and patients using the latest guidelines for nutrition intervention to prevent food allergies, obtain an accurate food allergy diagnosis, and successfully manage food allergies.
2. Implement an evidence-based approach as they educate patients in order to reduce the risk of food allergy reactions while protecting quality of life.
3. Understand and use the appropriate educational approaches and techniques to teach families, pediatric patients, or adult patients about successful food allergy management.
