Introducing FARE's New Website!
We are pleased to announce that FARE's new website is now live! You will immediately notice a vibrant new look, consistent with FARE's new identity, that will be prominent in our materials for event and initiatives in 2013 and beyond. Our new website, which can be found at www.foodallergy.org, continues to provide evidence-based educational resources for all those affected by food allergies, as well as the programs and tools that educators, healthcare workers, policymakers, food industry professionals and others have come to rely upon.
FARE's new website was designed with the food allergy community - and those who work to keep individuals with food allergies safe - in mind. You can quickly find the information you need with our new sections that break out resources for different audiences and provide targeted tips for managing food allergies in different environments. You can also become a member or donate online to show your support for the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. The new site also makes it easy for you to connect with your FARE regional office staff to learn more about local events.
"We have made great strides in raising awareness about food allergies as a serious public health issue in recent years, but we know food allergies continue to be widely misunderstood," said John L. Lehr, chief executive officer of FARE. "Having a comprehensive website with evidence-based information that helps educate people about food allergies is absolutely critical to our mission. The new www.foodallergy.org will help us continue to advance food allergy education, advocacy, awareness and research on behalf of the food allergy community."
The website also features personal stories and educational information specifically designed for kids and teens. FARE will be adding new content to the new site throughout the year.
Share the new website – www.foodallergy.org – with your network today, and let us know what you think!
FARE-Funded Researcher Featured in New York Times Article
FARE-funded researcher Dr. Kari Nadeau of Stanford University was featured Sunday in a New York Times Magazine cover article, "The Allergy Buster." FARE is proud to support world-class food allergy research and clinical trials nationwide, including Dr. Nadeau's. While oral immunotherapy, the treatment featured in the article, has shown encouraging results in clinical trials, it should not be performed outside the academic research setting.
