FARE's Education Working Group

The Education Working Group is a multidisciplinary committee tasked with helping guide FARE’s education initiatives and materials. The group was created in order to provide FARE’s Education Department with a wide spectrum of viewpoints and experiences. 

The group is made up entirely of volunteers that are leaders in their field. The Education Working Group includes world-renowned allergists, parents, support group leaders, a psychologist, a school nurse, a dietitian and two adults with food allergies. The current roster of the Education Working Group is:
