WHO ARE we?
Tots2Teens Allergies is an allergy communication service and consultancy that gives professional information and recommends services for the management of your child’s allergy.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Uche Okorji-Obike is a scientist, wife and mother.
She was inspired to create Tots2TeensAllergies through her experience of raising a daughter who developed allergies to cow’s milk and egg as a baby. This coupled with her expertise in inflammation, which was the focus of her PhD in Pharmacology, triggered her interest in understanding allergies as inflammation is one of the consequences of allergic reactions.
Uche obtained a BSc in Pharmacology from the University of Aberdeen, MSc in Drug Discovery from the University of Bradford and is a member of BSACI - the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology. She currently works in biopharmaceutical development in the pharmaceutical industry where she supports the development of new treatments by devising methods that are used in quality control in the release of these drugs.
Uche also has a Nutrition and Wellbeing Certificate (2020) from the University of Aberdeen.
“I created Teens2TotsAllergies because I was compelled to combine my experiences of raising a child with allergies with my scientific background to create what I hope will become a definitive resource for parents, guardians and healthcare professionals caring for our precious little… and big ones with food allergies.”
