Oral Food Challenges

What to Expect

Tuesday, July 28 at 1pm Eastern

Join Dr. Irene J. Mikhail, an allergist and immunologist at Nationwide Children’s in Columbus, Ohio, as she discusses some of the most common questions parents have about taking their children in for an oral food challenge. An oral food challenge in a medical setting is the main way of confirming the presence or absence of a food allergy. Many parents wonder what will happen during an oral food challenge (OFC) if it is their child’s first time.
