OUR WEBINAR SERIES:
The mission of Kids With Food Allergies Foundation is to help families keep children with food allergies safe and healthy. One of the unique ways KFA provides that help is through our online webinars. Our webinar series will expand our current education and support services for families and we're happy to announce they are free!
What is a webinar?
A webinar is an interactive online "meeting" event that allows our members from across the nation to participate together live. Attendees will be able to listen to a speaker, view a slideshow presentation, submit questions and more.
If you wish to attend one of our free webinars, you will need to submit a separate registration to reserve your seat for each webinar. You will receive an email with a link to click when it is time to join the webinar.
The only requirement is an internet connection. A free app is offered by GoToMeeting for those who wish to join our webinars by iOS devices (iPhone, iPad). A dial-in number will be available for those who wish to have their audio delivered by phone instead of through their speakers.
