FARE’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access

Thirty-two million Americans are impacted by potentially life-threatening food allergies, including a disproportionate percentage of persons of color. FARE is dedicated to ensuring that every individual in the food allergy community has a seat at the table and, most importantly, access to care.

FARE Voice of the Patient Roundtable

This fall, we are hosting our inaugural diversity equity and inclusion round table with key leaders. This event will be followed by the development and publication of a blueprint for barriers and solutions to problems of access and affordability. While focused on food allergy, the study may become a model for other diseases.

Food Allergy Community Engagement (FACE)

The delivery of health education resources and interventions in the community setting is is crucial to preventing and managing food allergy, particularly among under-resourced and under-served populations. In response, FARE will partner with leaders at nonprofits, health centers, faith-based organizations, schools and clinicians to assess the prevalence and burden of diagnosed and convincing food allergy, understand social determinants of health; and identify barriers to food allergy research participation and access to care.

Fellowship Program

In order to attract more research professionals, FARE is establishing a program for credentialing that will assist junior faculty to establish themselves as independent federally funded researchers, build their personal “brands” via regularly scheduled meetings with government officials, and elevate their voices through FARE public relations efforts and programming.

Community-Centric Research Initiative

We are creating a program that works collaboratively and alongside community hospitals, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and faith-based medical systems to better understand disease development and to create new treatment options for the patient community.
