New York City Can!

Let's raise healthy, safe, and empowered children who live in The Land of Can!

Ohio Can!

Hello from Independence (????) Ohio. On behalf of the Allison Rose Foundation, we are honored to provide these health, safety and empowerment resources to children, families, and educators across Ohio.

The Allison Rose Foundation is dedicated to changing the lives of food allergy families. It is named after our daughter, Ally.

Ally loved helping children. In fact, she was even studying to be an early childhood teacher at Ohio University. Providing FREE online health, safety and empowerment resources to enhance the lives of children is just the type of initiative Ally would have championed.

More is possible when young people embrace what they CAN do. Our children deserve to be healthy, safe and empowered so they can be the best versions of themselves.

Enjoy the resources. Also, when you have the chance, feel free to learn more about the Allison Rose Foundation and food allergies.

Ohio Can!

Dear Teachers & Parents,

As a mother, pediatrician, and researcher, I believe in the importance of raising healthy and empowered children, which is why I am eager to introduce your families to the resources here.

We've created a catalog of fun books that will educate, inspire, and empower your children to be the best versions of themselves. As we all know, especially during these times, it is important to support children with information, education, and love, and pediatricians worldwide want to ensure that schools and parents have the necessary tools they need.

Our mission is to provide you with the most up-to-date medical information written by young people with expert guidance so your families can enjoy and learn together. Keep checking back here, too, as we will continue to add other Can-inspired, health-related books to the list.
