Food Allergy Awareness Week is May 10-16 this year!
Help us celebrate, and end the week on a great note, by joining us for a Food Allergy Twitter Party!
Jennifer B (from Food Allergy Buzz) and I are working feverishly on this great event. We promise it will be fun and educational. We’re even working on lining up some great prizes.
Uh, What IS a Twitter Party?
A Twitter Party is where a group of people can discuss or “Tweet” on a specific topic in real time in their own little chat room. To participate in the discussion you’ll need to sign up for a free Twitter account. Read on for more information as to how this works.
The party will take place on Friday May 15 at 12pm eastern time and 10:30pm eastern time (9am pacific time and 7:30pm pacific time).
The hashtag for the party is #foodallergy.
At the above mentioned times you can ask questions of our panelists by using twitter and making sure to leave room in your post for #foodallergy.
To follow along with the ongoing conversations go to summize.com and type in #foodallergy. This will take you to our party room where our #foodallergy posts and questions will go.
What will be discussed?
Anything and everything pertaining to food allergies. Eating out, epi pens, preparing food, health care plans, allergists, new research, etc.
