Do you have questions about your school allergy plan?  your stock epinephrine?  evidence-based practices regarding food allergies?

Join us as we talk with Dr. Harvey Leo, MD about allergies and anaphylaxis.  Dr. Leo would love to know your questions ahead of time so please email them to michiganschoolnurses@gmail.com ahead of time, with "Question for Dr. Leo" in the subject line.  (Dr. Leo is the physician that many of us get our stock epinephrine prescriptions from.)

Dr. Leo  is a board certified allergist in practice with Allergy & Immunology Associates of Ann Arbor. He is also Assistant Research Scientist in the University of Michigan School of Public Health Division of Health Behavior and Education & Center for Managing Chronic Disease. Dr. Leo completed undergraduate studies at the University of Notre Dame and medical school at Tulane University School of Medicine. After a residency in Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, he was accepted into the internationally renowned Pediatric Allergy and Immunology Fellowship program at National Jewish Medical and Research Center.

 Dr. Leo's research interests center on the impact of allergic diseases in the pediatric population and community. He has studied issues related to food allergies in the childcare and school setting. He initiated and coordinated the Ann Arbor School District's Food Allergy Planning Commission.  This resulted in implementing a district wide food allergy response and plan for a Michigan school district serving over 16,000 children. His subsequent initiatives include educating and guiding accredited childcare facilities in appropriate and systemic approaches to food allergies. He is also working with the Department of Health and Human Services on a possible national approach to the childhood food allergy issue to include Head Start programs.

Dr. Leo is a member of the University of Michigan Pediatric Asthma Disease Management Program. He is also involved in work with the Center for Managing Chronic Disease on a Dissemination of Asthma Education in Elementary Schools in Beijing, China.
