FAACT's Teal Love Shines Bright: Food Allergy Summit 2020

FAACT’s Teal Love Shines Bright: Food Allergy Summit is for parents, caregivers, adults with food allergies, school nurses, and more!

Join us virtually on September 12, 2020 from 10am – 5:30pm EST (with a break from 1p-1:30p EST).

Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has left us with unimaginable situations, living with food allergies and the challenges we face do not change. The upcoming 20-21 school year has left many bewildered as to what may lay ahead. To help you tackle this unprecedented year, FAACT will host one of the most important Summits in its history as we address food allergies during this pandemic. We want to help you stay up-to-date regarding food allergy treatments and research, mental health tips and resources, civil rights advocacy in schools, how to advocate at the state and federal levels, racial and health disparities in the food allergy community, connecting with your community, and more.

We will adjust topics based on the current needs of our constituents.

Registration Fee: $50 (includes FAACT materials and swag mailed to your home).

Register today, and we will "see" you in September!
