National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Webinar: Food Allergy Research Findings

Your Computer, iOS or Android Device

You're invited to learn more about the findings of a long-awaited food allergy report, co-sponsored by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

This webinar will present the highlights of the conclusions and recommendations from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee that released the report.

The report is called "Food Allergies: Global Burden, Causes, Treatment, Prevention and Public Policy.”

AAFA’s Senior Vice President of Advocacy, Policy and Research, Meryl Bloomrosen, presented to the committee last year.

Food allergy—a potentially life-threatening condition with no known cure—affects nearly 15 million people in the U.S., including 1 in 13 children. Although much has been learned about food allergy management and treatment, there are still many unanswered questions.

On November 30, 2016 at 11 am ET, join a webinar to find out the committee's main messages and recommendations for industry, policy makers, educational institutions and others regarding:

  • What steps can be taken to create safe environments for those with food allergies in a wide range of settings?
  • What research gaps need to be filled to provide better guidance to health care providers and policy makers?

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) is a division of AAFA. KFA hosts the largest support community serving families with food allergies.
