According to the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) organization, up to 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies. Of this 15 million, the condition affects 1 in every 13 American children under 18 years of age. In an effort to educate the public and spread awareness about the world of food allergies, FARE has declared May Food Allergy Action Month and May 10-16, 2015 as Food Allergy Awareness Week.

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma is proud to participate in this initiative. Click here to learn more about our "Show Us Your Epi" contest.
