Food Allergy Bloggers Come Together in Las Vegas

Last week, FARE staff had the privilege to participate in the first ever Food Allergy Bloggers Conference (FABlogCon) and connect with dozens of food allergy bloggers, health care professionals and community members. FARE is a proud sponsor of this event, which received support through our community grants program.

The weekend brought together bloggers and other advocates from across the nation – some with food allergies, some with children who have food allergies, and some representing the celiac disease and food intolerance communities – for a weekend of learning, support and inspiration. Conference attendees discussed some of the major challenges facing the food allergy community today, shared personal experiences, and learned about important ways to advance the community’s messages about life-threatening food allergies. This remarkable group proved that although our community is spread across the country and diverse in many ways, we are all united by a common cause: to make the world a safer and better place for those living with food allergies.

FARE is also grateful to the bloggers who joined us at the FARE Walk for Food Allergy in Las Vegas. Their team raised $3,500 to support FARE’s mission!

Thank you to all of the organizers, sponsors and attendees for making this event possible, especially conference organizers Jenny Sprague (Multiple Food Allergy Help) and Homa Woodrum (Oh Mah Deehness!).
