On 20 June, at the Singapore National Skin Centre, the Eczema Support Group will be holding its monthly sharing session and this time, with a doctor on our advisory panel Dr Mark Tang.
The topic for 20 June lunch – All Parents Wanted to Know on Allergy
20 June 2014 (Friday) – Venue, NSC Room 401, 12.30 noon to 1.30pm
1. 12.30 – 12.45 pm Introducing Ourselves – we can do this with our mouths full (lunch provided).
2. 12.45 – 1.30 pm I’d be facilitating the discussion on allergy, covering broadly
Allergy Testing – Does my child need to go for allergy test? Which are the common tests? Are they accurate?
Common Allergens – Which are the common allergens? Is food a common culprit?
Allergy and Skin – What does having a tested positive allergen means for my skin?
Do note though that this is not a consultation session. For those bringing your child, there will be balloons for sculpturing, puzzles and coloring to occupy your children.
Same note: Information shared is not medical advice, please still see a doc. No selling anything or pretending to be a parent of eczema child. Information on my blog is not pre-approved by NSC.
3. What’s for Lunch – Very likely, pizza.
4. YOU MUST RSVP – Our medical social worker who is helping with the Eczema Support Group will be in-charge of confirming your attendance, which isn’t confirmed till she says so! If you’re coming, please email me (email@example.com) your name, mobile and email, number of adults & kids coming, so that I can get her to contact you.
Look forward to seeing everyone! Mei
