Educational Outreach Programs

Texas Children’s has implemented workshops for school nurses and teachers in the Houston area to increase awareness of food allergies.

We also have an active collaboration with the Houston Independent School District and several private schools across the greater Houston region to implement food allergy management plans. Online training has been developed and implemented in the Houston area to train school personnel about food allergies.

Now, our goal is to reach and partner with schools outside of the Houston Independent School District to identify undiagnosed children and improve the integration and safety of all children with food allergies. Funding for this effort supports the salaries of an educational specialist and support team that will enable us to increase our impact in the community.

If you are interested in having us speak at your school about food allergies, email us at
