In memory – This conference is dedicated to the memory of Daniel Sargent, who died from peanut anaphylaxis at a potluck party at Magnuson Park in 2008. We hope to raise awareness among adults about the risks associated with eating food prepared by others at social events and the importance of having an emergency care plan that includes having epinephrine on hand at all times as well as transport to the nearest emergency room if epinephrine is administered.
