This article features a resource that provides inspiration and valuable insight to the food allergy community. We pledged to highlight 17 such resources for End Allergies Together's #DoYour17 campaign in 2016 which has since ended. You can still sponsor our effort with a donation. E-A-T underwrites all administrative costs, so 100% of your donation goes toward funding research into a cure for food allergy.
If you’ve spent any time interacting with the food allergy community on-line, you’ve no doubt heard of Gina Clowes, FARE’s Director of Education, Parenting Columnist for Allergic Living, consultant, speaker, author, advocate, blogger, and mom to a son with multiple food allergies.
The author of One Of The Gang: Nurturing the Souls of Children with Food Allergies, Gina is amongst the most well respected experts on the topic of parenting children with food allergies. Families coping with a new diagnosis as well as parents navigating the various stages of raising a child with allergies to adulthood will find her advice to be valuable and insightful, as we have.
There are many places to follow Gina and draw on her experience, including her site, her newsletter, and her Allergic Living column, but we suggest you start with her Allergy Moms Facebook page, a terrific resource that provides frequent updates where you can interact with her.
