The new National Allergy Strategy youth project’s 250K website was launched on 26 June 2017 by Hon Dr David Gillespie MP.
Also speaking at the launch were A/Prof Richard Loh and Ms Maria Said, co-chairs of the National Allergy Strategy Steering Committee, Eloise and Jaclyn.
Eloise and Jaclyn shared valuable personal perspectives as young people living with severe allergy.
The 250K website is a hub for the 250,000 young Australians living with severe allergies, developed in response to a national online survey and focus groups sessions with teens and young adults.
Designed by young people for young people, the aim of this innovative website is to provide age-appropriate information and resources in a fun and informative way, to assist young people who are living with severe allergies, and to help them to feel more connected with other teens and young adults going through similar experiences.
