Training others about food allergies is a tasking burden on students with allergies
Students don’t like to actively associate themselves with their allergies.
Other students desire to create an inclusive environment, but lack allergy awareness
Orientation is an overwhelming time for all students
A university’s culture is established in the eyes of new students during orientation
Point of view
Creating a college environment accepting and safe for all can start with students. Peer teaching about the symptoms of anaphylaxis is effective in removing the burden from those with allergies and creates a sense of comfort.
