UCLA Food Allergy Family Day 2019
This past weekend I managed the FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) table at the annual UCLA Food Allergy Family Day. It was my second year having the privilege of doing so, and I’m glad I did. Not only was it great to meet other individuals who are dealing with similar food limitations, but I was also able to share my journey with those who have newly diagnosed food allergies. Another thing I love about this event is the amount of companies that come out to spread awareness through literature and samples. A shout-out to Enjoy Life Foods, Auvi-Q, and Kroger. A personal highlight for me was learning more about the desensitization clinical trials being offered at UCLA. For those of you in the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend that you attend next year’s event!
