FAAN Survey on Airline Travel

If you’re not on FAAN’s weekly email newsletter, you might have missed this…

The results of the survey will help us better understand the behaviors and experiences of individuals affected by peanut/tree nut allergy as related to commercial flying.

To take the brief, anonymous survey, please visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/WJTV2FN.”
