Food Allergy Can Openers: ARF's Educate & Empower


My friends from the Allison Rose Foundation posted this yesterday. They are true Can Openers!

This morning our dream came true. We officially kicked off Food Allergy: Educate and Empower to high school students at #CuyahogaHeightsHighSchool. Having the opportunity to engage with these teens and young adults, share Allison's story and show them the severity of food allergies and how they can make a difference and save lives was inspiring. We are so grateful to the school's administration, staff and impressive students, and the best educational team, including @clevelandclinic allergist and #CodeANA founder, Dr. Alice Hoyt, @allergykidsdoc, @chfdlocal702 and #ValleyViewFireDepartment. One down, now we're ready for the rest of the nation!

JJ Vulopas is a senior at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. An advocate for young people, JJ has lived with food allergies his entire life. He is the author of the children's book, Land of Not. You can read his daily blog at and follow him @thelandofcan on Twitter and Instagram.
