Boston Globe Magazine: Raising kids with allergies

Jennifer LeBovidge, PhD, a psychologist from Children’s Allergy and Immunology Program, was quoted this weekend in a Boston Globe Magazine article about the challenges of parenting a child with significant food allergies.

We recently finished an eight-part milk allergy series where we followed Brett Nasuti, a Children’s patient who last summer became the first person ever to go through a milk exposure desensitization trial. Check out the first video in the series.
