The International FPIES Association (I-FPIES) is proud to name four additional members to our Medical Advisory Board (MAB), which is comprised of the world’s leading experts on Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES).

Our Medical Advisory Board is composed of allergists, immunologists, gastroenterologists and nutritionists who share a common purpose to create global collaboration for the diagnosis, treatment, management and advancement of FPIES. The MAB advises the organization on FPIES education, awareness and advocacy initiatives while also providing medical review of our web content and educational materials.

As part of our effort to advance awareness and understanding of FPIES, we’re thrilled to announce four new MAB members:
