Jerome Bettis Talks About Food Allergies

I had to laugh yesterday when my friend Keeley from Allergy-Friendly Lunch Boxes described her interview with Jerome Bettis as a “date.” I had a date with Jerome too, but mine was an “afternoon date.” Jerome is a former Pittsburgh Steelers running back, with a severe shellfish allergy.You can hear our conversation here:

Consistent with the sports theme, Jerome describes his action plan as a “playbook” – and just like the playbooks my kids had when playing sports, the plays lay out the steps for success. If you’d like to check out the entire fifteen minute interview, including questions from Sarah and Selena:


 Check out Keeley’s blog post for the questions and answers from the evening session with Jerome. Thanks to Sanofi for driving this initiative and for giving us the opportunity to talk to Jerome Bettis. Jerome, thanks for picking up the blitz and being a food allergy role model for our kids!
