The UCLA Food Allergy Program, which benefits both children and adults, took center stage on June 2, 2018, when the UCLA food allergy community came together for Food Allergy Family Day. Highlights of the event included patient stories, informational booths, crafts, therapy dogs, face painting, music and non-allergenic snacks. The event served as an opportunity for the families of patients with food allergies to connect and learn and build visibility for the program, which advances research that leads to improved treatments.
On June 5, 2018, the UCLA Food Allergy Program continued to spread awareness and celebrate its accomplishments at a Food Allergy Salon event, where supporters and advocates heard an update on advances made in food allergy research and treatment at UCLA over the past few years and the future goals of the program. Parents of children with food allergies were in attendance and shared stories about the life-changing resources provided by this program and the innovative research it undertakes.
