Allergy Talk

On Wednesday, May 2, the Martha’s Vineyard Family Center Allergy Support Group is presenting a talk called Managing Atopic Dermatitis and Eczema. The event will be led by Karol Timmons, a pediatric nurse for 32 years who specializes in asthma, atopic dermatitis, eczema, and food allergies.

Ms. Simmons received her Master’s Degree from Northeastern University and works at Children’s Hospital Boston in the Allergy/Immunology program. She is the cofounder with her collaborating physician of the Atopic Dermatitis Center, a multidisciplinary program that includes a pediatric psychologist and pediatric nutritionist.

In other words, she knows her stuff.

The talk will be held in the regional high school’s conference room from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
