Must Hear: Lianne Mandelbaum Discusses Food Allergy and Air Travel

Air Travel

Last week, Lianne Mandelbaum – founder of the No Nut Traveler blog – was featured on NPR’s Here & Now to discuss the difficulties of traveling by air with a severe peanut allergy.

Lianne describes the need for early boarding, buffer zones, and stock epinephrine on every flight. The 10 minute segment entitled A Push To Make Flying Safer For People With Peanut Allergies is well worth the time and you can listen to it here:

Lianne is working with Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, and the Asthma and Allergy Network to promote passage of the Airline Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act, bipartisan legislation introduced to the US Senate as S1972. fully supports S1972 and urges you to contact your senators to voice your support as well.
