Why Should I Attend?

For Adults

The faces of food allergy are diverse and include the children and adults who live with it, as well as everybody who cares for them. Families who attend this conference will hear the latest research and advancements by top clinicians and researchers in the Midwest, connect with other families, and build their network of support. In addition, families will participate in an open forum to have their questions answered and concerns heard.

For Kids and Teens

We hope to provide a supportive environment for kids & teens with food allergies to connect with one another and learn the latest research and techniques to help manage daily life with food allergies. Clinicians and researchers will offer kids & teens an opportunity to ask questions and engage with each other, empower them to better understand and manage their food allergies, and help to build their network of support.

"This conference was amazing. Navigating allergies can be overwhelming and socially isolating. Online info is great, but this type of event builds a great sense of community and support."
