Fending Off Food Allergies

Summertime means barbeques, picnics, and an occasional insect bite. But for people suffering from food allergies it can also mean some serious reactions.

Ed Neuzil, Board Certified Advanced Practice Registered Nurse at Allergy Sinus & Asthma Family Health Center explains how they can identify and manage your food allergy symptoms.
