Anaphylaxis Canada and the University of Alberta are looking for volunteers for a study

Anaphylaxis Canada and researchers from the University of Alberta are looking for children (age 7-11) and youth (age 12-15) at risk for anaphylaxis to participate in the online peer mentorship pilot study, Sustainable Online Support for Children and Adolescents Affected by Asthma and Allergies (SOS). Participants in this study will take part in eight online support sessions, occurring once a week from September to November 2012. These sessions will be led by older peer mentors with allergies, under the guidance of a Health Support and Education Specialist. They will allow participants to share experiences and learn from each other, while interacting through safe and secure online technologies. For more information, please visit:
