AllerTrain RA for Housing Career Staff

Effective immediately, all Housing career employees will be required to complete a mandatory online training course titled, AllerTrain RA. 

 This course is a gluten-free and food allergy training program. Although this training is geared towards House Fellows, it is important for all Housing career employees to understand how to handle an emergency, should they encounter a resident having a reaction. 

Through this online 8-minute food allergy training, you will learn the health implications food allergies have on their residents, emergency protocol, identify common risk factors for students with food allergies on campus and in dining halls.  You will also be better prepared to handle emergency situations until medical professionals arrive. Growing allergy awareness help facilitate a safe college experience and encourage students to continue to take responsibility for their health.
