Charity has always had a personal interest in allergy and immunology as she has managed food allergies, environmental allergies, asthma, severe eczema, and anaphylaxis in her own family.
She has been active with the Coastal Food Allergy Support group since 2011. She is currently president of the group and once served as the education and outreach coordinator.
She believes that patient education is an extremely important aspect of medicine and appreciates having a unique perspective to offer families.
