Food Allergy Awareness Week
Food Allergy Awareness Week was created to educate the public about food allergies. It's also a great opportunity to shine a light on Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES), a non-IgE food allergy.
There are many simple ways you can get involved in promoting FPIES awareness and education and inspiring others to get involved. Watch for Food Allergy Awareness Week in May, and join I-FPIES in taking action on behalf of those living with FPIES. Here are just a few ways families like yours have honored Food Allergy Awareness Week:

Rare Disease Day
Rare Disease Day is an opportunity to raise awareness for rare diseases as a global health challenge and foster support for those living with them. Instead of directing efforts toward one particular disease, this day (February 28th ) is for the rare disease community to join as a whole.
The International FPIES Association (I-FPIES) is proud to be a Rare Disease Day partner. We're also honored to be the official FPIES patient organization affiliated with NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders). Click here for NORD's report on FPIES in the Rare Disease Database.
