Here's How You Take Action for Kids With Food Allergies in May

Join Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) and get involved this May for Food Allergy Awareness Week and Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. KFA is a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Together, we have many interesting and exciting announcements to share, so check back as May approaches!

  1. Join our Kids With Food Allergies community to:
    • Follow our blog for the latest news on asthma and allergy research and treatments.
    • Meet and get support from others who manage asthma and allergic disease.
    • Get involved in research. Opt-in to get matched to clinical trials and other research opportunities.
       
  2. Make a pact to A.C.T. for Asthma or Allergy
    “A” - have an action plan for asthma or anaphylaxis.
    “C” - carry important medications and wear a medical ID to alert others of your condition.
    “T” - establish treatment plans, both for every day and emergencies.
