Dr. Julia Upton, MD, MPH

Food allergy has been increasing for decades. More than one in 15 Canadian children, or two kids in every classroom across the country report having at least one food allergy. Progress is now being made in understanding the causes and possible treatments. In this talk, Dr. Upton will discuss some past and present challenges in food allergy, and possible future treatments for food allergies which have already developed in children and adults.
Dr. Upton's presentation is part of an ongoing series of compelling lectures for alumni, hosted at venues across the GTA. U of T in Your Neighbourhood brings the university right into your community, keeping you informed, inspired and connected.
