Do you support the work we are doing? In 2012, KFA launched a new educational initiative to bring the experts to families and community members free of cost. Webinars provide a platform for parents to access food allergy information from quality guest speakers without having to travel from their homes. Webinars also provide an alternative way to learn about food allergy management and can be helpful for people who learn better by listening and watching.
If you support our initiative to open access of information to at-risk families, or if you have benefitted from one of our webinar programs, please make a donation to our ACCESS KFA campaign so that we can continue to offer these programs free of cost. With your help, we are reaching at-risk families and giving them the tools they need to safely manage food allergies. Thank you!
