Food Allergy Awareness Week: How to Get Your School Involved
FARE Webinar for Schools: K-12
In 1998, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, now Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), created Food Allergy Awareness Week to educate the public about food allergy, a potentially life-threatening disease. While we work to increase awareness and action on behalf of the food allergy community year-round, Food Allergy Awareness Week provides a special opportunity to shine a light on food allergies and anaphylaxis. This year Food Allergy Awareness Week is May 13-19, 2018. Discover tips and resources to spread awareness in schools for Food Allergy Awareness Week by joining this webinar.
