Special Presentation by Allergy Mentor, Tanya O’Brien. Tanya is the founder of Allergy Mentor in Columbus.
The title of her presentation is “Be Prepared: 10 Steps for Accommodating Allergic Scouts”
Nearly every unit, den, or patrol deals with youth who have allergies. Tanya will cover topics that are relevant to dealing with allergic exposures that are most likely to occur in the scouting experience. This will include how to recognize and respond to an allergic emergency, how to minimize risk while maximizing inclusion, and how to empower the scouts to be part of the process. The focus will be on what Scout leaders need to know to feel confident in keeping their allergic scouts reaction free, and what they need to do if a reaction happens.
Roundtable will be at Northwest Christian Church, 1340 Fishinger Rd in Upper Arlington and will start at 7 PM.
