Two leading food allergy organizations, The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) and the Food Allergy Initiative (FAI), have merged. The new organization will be called FARE. This merger is more than "fair", it's fantastic.With over 15 million Americans diagnosed with food allergies, the announcement couldn't come at a better time. The merger represents greater efforts being made towards research, education, and awareness in food allergies.
"Building on the significant accomplishments of FAAN and FAI over the past two decades, FARE will fund world-class research that advances treatment and understanding, provide evidence-based education and resources, undertake advocacy at all levels of government, and work to increase awareness of food allergies as a serious public health issue."
