for the Food Allergy Conference for
Education and Science
Registration Coming Soon
Become empowered to navigate your allergy and allergic conditions! Don't miss the chance to learn more about your diagnosis, the science behind food allergy, and tips for daily life. Experts and advocates from around the U.S. will join us virtually to provide an in depth and up-to-date review of the research and management of food allergy.
The Center for Food Allergy and Asthma Research (CFAAR), part of the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Led by Ruchi Gupta, MD, MPH, the CFAAR team aims to find answers and shape policies surrounding food allergy, asthma and other allergic conditions.
Why Should I Attend?
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."
