Allergy awareness

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 26 April 2019

How different is the day to day experience of people with serious allergies? New research in Germany has investigated the level of knowledge on allergies held by hospitality staff. It also looked at negative attitudes about allergies and how they can affect the lives of the people who live with them. 

Dr Rani Peniamina wrote her PhD thesis on the impact of food allergies on quality of life and joins us to talk about how pervasive these attitudes can be.
