FAAN'S Mission: To advance research that leads us to a better understanding of, and a cure for, food allergy and anaphylaxis and that improve the quality of life of individuals managing these conditions.
There is still much work to be done. In the past five years, peanut allergy in children has doubled. The estimated number of Americans with food allergy has increased from 6 million to approximately 12 million, and we don’t know why. The scientific community needs our help.
To stimulate additional food allergy research activity and establish a central clearinghouse for information about research, FAAN has strengthened its research mission. Click here for more information.
NOTE TO DISHIES: Did you know that some people's food allergies are so severe that they could die just by coming in contact with the allergen? You don't even have to eat it! We need to make sure all teachers are educated about this and we need to make it legal for all teachers to have EPI pens in the classrooms. It could mean the difference between life and death!
