The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) Promotes NEA HIN Publication, 'The Food Allergy Book - What School Employees Need to Know'
BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) is pleased to be promoting, The Food Allergy Book - What School Employees Need to Know, a publication of the NEA Health Information Network (NEA HIN). The booklet was funded in part with Federal funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and provides information on what to do when a student is having a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction, and explains how school staff can help prevent reactions in their school.
HFI will support the outreach by publishing excerpts of the book on its website and generating and disseminating collaborative press releases with NEA HIN.
"We are enthused about this publication of the NEA HIN, and are pleased to join them in raising awareness of food allergy in schools," said Allen Rathey, president and founder of The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI). "This easy-to-read guide lays out a plan and examples for all to follow, and concisely addresses an under-publicized area of concern for facility professionals and others."
"Because food allergies pose serious threats to student health, NEA HIN worked with experts to produce the Food Allergy Book, and we appreciate HFI's dedication to publicize it. The information can assist educators in helping to prevent food allergy reactions at schools. We also should strengthen state and local policy to raise awareness and protect student health," said Jerald Newberry, Executive Director of the NEA Health Information Network.
