One of I-FPIES's primary objectives is to provide families and healthcare professionals with medical information from the best available sources. For this reason, we are fortunate to have a Medical Advisory Board composed of the global leading allergists, immunologists, gastroenterologists and dietitians — many of whom are active in FPIES research — from prestigious medical facilities worldwide.

Our Medical Advisory Board has garnered international support and recognition and is committed to assisting I-FPIES in realizing our mission, vision and goals. Chaired by Dr. Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn, Mount Sinai Medical Center, our board includes the following esteemed physicians:
