  • May 4: National FPIES Awareness Day – We honor those with food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome.

  • May 12-18: Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW) – Nearly 6 million children and over 26 million adults in the U.S. have food allergies. This year, our focus is on raising awareness about how food allergies are more than just a physical condition and they impact every aspect of life. But it doesn't have to define you. Together, we can work to overcome the challenges and burdens of food allergies – in ways both big and small.
