ELL Announces Official Launch of the Protect Allergic Children (PAC) Program


Certified consultants will be trained to provide education and support services to schools, daycare facilities, camps and families to better protect food allergic children. August 9th, 2009 will mark the launch of the regional training sessions in which registered and pre-qualified ELL consultant candidates will gather for an in-person training session on the ELL training content entitled Protect Allergic Children (PAC) Program.
