Please find below a call for participants for a food allergy research study being conducted by Dr. Jennifer LeBovidge, Boston Children’s Hospital.

Evaluating a New Food Allergy Handbook for Parents

Do you have a child who was recently diagnosed with a food allergy?

Boston Children’s Hospital is conducting a research study to find out whether a new handbook about managing food allergies will be helpful for parents. We want to find out whether the handbook improves parents’ knowledge about taking care of food allergies and their emotional stress about food allergies. We are also interested in parents’ opinions about whether the handbook is helpful for them.

You may qualify to participate for this study, if your child is 0 to 18 years old, was diagnosed with a food allergy by a doctor in the past 12 months, and has been prescribed an epinephrine auto-injector.

If you decide to participate in this research study, you will be asked to complete a 30-minute study online survey at three times:

• At the start of the study (baseline)
• About 2 weeks after baseline
• About 2 months after baseline

You will be randomized (chosen by chance, like the flip of a coin) to either receive the food allergy handbook after the baseline survey, or after the study is over. You can either complete the studies online or they can be mailed to you. You will not be asked to come to Boston Children's Hospital for any research visits.

Participating parents will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 gift card. You will have an approximately one in six chance of winning.

If you are interested in participating or learning more about this study, please contact Dr. Jennifer LeBovidge, the Principal Investigator of the study, at or 617-355-2195.

This study is supported by Anaphylaxis Canada
