The FPIES Foundation has participated in several food allergy awareness events this fall!

On September 13th The FPIES Foundation was once again honored to provide families with FPIES information on at Boston Zoo on a day for families living with Food Allergies sponsored by Boston Children’s Hospital FACET program.

Truly, a big step— the FPIES Foundation was the first FPIES advocacy non-profit organization to participate in this esteemed National Pediatric GI conference!
