'Modern Family' actress supports food allergies

Julie Bowen, an award winning actress from one of my favorite TV shows, “Modern Family”, has a son who is allergic to peanuts and walnuts. To improve awareness, Julie filmed a public service announcement (PSA) encouraging people to learn more about anaphylaxis and its triggers. The new initiative also includes the “Get Schooled in Anaphylaxis Challenge,” a nationwide college scholarship contest for students in grades 1-12 aimed at helping schools become better prepared to support students with life-threatening allergies.
