For more than two decades, FARE and its legacy organizations – Food Allergy Initiative and Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network – have worked to amplify the voices of patients with food allergies and to engage the broader community in promoting life, health, and hope for all those managing food allergies.
We support the ability of individuals with food allergies to live safe, productive lives with the respect of others through our Education and Advocacy initiatives.
Working across multiple modalities and stakeholder groups, we introduce content and activation opportunities that focus on awareness, inclusion, prevention, and emergency protocols.
FARE is transforming research, education, awareness, fundraising, advocacy, and collaborations to amplify the patient voice to achieve four aims:
• ESTABLISHING a baseline understanding of the disease
• ELEVATING the quality and accessibility of care
• EXPENDING the number of therapies
• ACCELERATING new innovations
Each key aim has a list of strategic initiatives and programs that FARE plans to launch over the next 5 years with a goal of accelerating the development of solutions to improve the lives of food allergy individuals. Priority programs include (but are not limited to):
• Driving consensus among the food allergy community on the current state of food allergy care and publishing a set of national standards and educational tools to better inform patients and clinicians about their choices
• Entering into multiple collaborative research studies and partnerships with global healthcare and other industry players seeking external support to inform innovation strategies in food allergy. Partnerships will span prevention solutions, therapies, diagnostics, and other non-research programs to improve the lives of food allergy individuals
• Elevating the quality of research, clinical trials and tertiary care performed at FARE clinical network sites and leveraging this network more optimally in the future to help meet FARE’s strategic goals
• Launching one or more diagnostic related initiatives to accelerate the development of tests that could eventually replace oral food challenge as the gold standard
• On-going expansion of FARE’s patient registry and development of a broader patient data strategy that integrates patient biosamples, clinical trial data, and other novel sources of patient information
• Numerous policy, education, and advocacy related initiatives that impact research and new innovation
At this time, FARE is seeking qualified, highly motivated individuals to help in the on-going development of FARE’s research strategy and to lead implementation of the plan.
