New Educational Resources for Global FPIES Day ~ October 14, 2021
Introducing a new section on our website: resources for adults with FPIES. Find resources for work, school, and daily life!
This year as we celebrate Global FPIES Day, a time for our global community of families, practitioners, researchers and patient advocates to come together in the name of taking big steps for FPIES awareness, we focus on ways to enhance our community's understanding of FPIES-- through the words we use, through the resources we share, and through the advocacy we bring to our local and global communities. How do we help others understand our messages for FPIES awareness and education? What's your #Ten4FPIES?
Meet Our Global FPIES Day Presenters and Allies from 2020!
Join us in sharing print resources, educational videos, and inspirational family stories to promote FPIES awareness in your local communities and beyond!

Step Up the Conversation
FPIES is a rare condition and raising awareness is essential!
Awareness helps to inspire medical practitioners to educate themselves about FPIES care management, to encourage researchers to examine mechanisms and potential causes, and to motivate communities to get creative in how they accommodate individuals with food allergies in schools, recreation centers, and community events.
Awareness can be part of our daily lives!
Pack FPIES awareness business cards in your diaper bag for a moms’ group, or drop off some FPIES rack cards to the EMTs at the fire department when you take your child to meet the firefighters. Kids can follow the path to advocacy, too! For older children, you can teach them how to advocate for themselves in school, on sports teams, and beyond.
Walk the Walk
Always be at the ready to share information about FPIES– the more informed our communities are, the more protected and included our children can be in day-to-day activities!
Go the Distance
Where do we start?
Awareness on a local platform is powerful; awareness on a national and global scale can be life-changing for the entire FPIES community.
