I was delighted to be a guest on the FAACT’s Roundtable Podcast with attorney Amelia Smith moderated by Caroline Moassessi, FAACT’s Director of Community Engagement. It was a lively discussion, filled with information to keep our students safe!
In this episode, nationally certified school nurse, Robin Cogan, MEd, RN, NCSN, whose commentary has been featured on CNN and the New York Times, and FAACT’s General Council and Vice President of Civil Rights Advocacy, Amelia G. Smith, JD, discuss concerns, possible solutions and the rights of parents/caregivers of children with food allergies and/or asthma as parents tackle Back-To-School options.
