FARE: Food Allergy Research & Education Organization
When: Wednesday, April 25 2018
1 in 13 kids have a food allergy. Over 40% have already experienced a life-threatening reaction. Watching a child become sick, unable to breathe or become unresponsive is beyond terrifying, especially when there are only precious seconds between life and death. We're very proud to support FARE, the world's largest private source of funding for food allergy research and the leader in the fight against food allergies. MDC was honored to attend FARE's annual luncheon, where we heard from parents whose children died as a result of something as simple as eating a grilled cheese sandwich or granola bar; completely avoidable tragedies. We are excited to work with them and the rest of the medical community to continue to raise awareness, impact legislation and help make the world safer for our kids.
