Q&As and Webinars
The Allergy Team is fortunate to have the support of allergy experts, including consultants, nurses, dietitians and psychologists, who join us for regular presentations and Q&A sessions.
Typically, these hour-long webinars work like a conversation, with a member of The Allergy Team putting your questions to the expert in the hot seat. Sometimes we cover anything and everything and on other occasions, we focus on a particular topic.
You’ll find details of upcoming Q&As and webinars below… be warned, they book up fast!
“Thank you so much…That hour was far more helpful than anything else since our diagnosis”

He obtained his medical degree in 1993 and paediatric specialisation qualifications in 2000.
Prof. du Toit has given up his time for free to help The Allergy Team support families.
This webinar will be delivered via Zoom.
My Allergy Story: In conversation with allergy mum and author, Alexa Baracaia
We are pleased to announce that journalist and blogger Alexa Baracaia is joining us for our first ‘My Allergy Story’ Q&A, later this month.
Alexa’s son was only a few months old when he was diagnosed with food allergies and she hosts the #theallergyhour support forum on Twitter. She has always been candid about the struggles of having a child with food allergies and now she has written a book!
During this online chat, we will ask her about writing “My Family and Food Allergies”, get some top tips on how to manage the challenges of having a child with a food allergy and discuss Alexa’s campaigning. The second part of the session will be opened up to you for a Q&A.
Alexa says her book is the guide she wishes she’d had when her son was diagnosed a decade ago – it is packed with useful advice on things like eating out, travelling and hosting parties, as well as recipes and the story of Alexa’s personal allergy journey. It was written for anyone caring for, or close to, a child with food allergies, so you might want to invite grandparents or friends along to this chat too.
We really hope you can join us for this FREE event.
