Food Allergy Resources for Healthcare Providers

FARE Virtual Contains: Courage Research Retreat
In the past this event was for food allergy researchers, but this year we are adding general sessions where our community can engage in important conversations with key medical experts and researchers in the food allergy space. 

Additional Online Education
The Consortium of Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease Researchers (CEGIR) has produced a series of educational videos for healthcare providers about eosinophilic GI disease. These videos do not offer continuing education credit. They can be viewed on the Rare Clinical Diseases Research Network website.
