2018 FARECon featuring Teen Summit Scholarships are provided with support by:
Emily Zaltsman Memorial Scholarship Fund
Emily Zaltsman knew firsthand the challenges of living with a food allergy, and it inspired her to make the world a safer place for others like her. She not only chose the 2017 San Antonio Food Allergy Heroes Walk as her Bat Mitzvah project, but she also dreamed of dedicating her life to researching food allergies. Tragically, Emily was killed at the age of 13 by a distracted driver who was texting. Even though Emily is no longer with us, her mission to help the 15 million Americans living with food allergies lives on through the Emily Zaltsman Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Jody Falco & Carlo Steinman
When Teen Summit began more than a decade ago, Jody and Carlo were two of the driving forces behind the event's creation. Since then, they have attended nearly every summit, serving as speakers and friendly faces for new attendees throughout the years.
Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Foundation
The Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Foundation was created to reduce dangerous food allergy deaths by spreading public awareness, providing education regarding emergency responses, and increasing the availability of epinephrine injectors in public places.
