Update for Sept. 9, 2021:

If you missed the live session, watch the recording on YouTube.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), as a founding member of the Food Allergy Collaborative, invites you to join us on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021, for a patient-focused drug development (PFDD) meeting for food allergy.

What: Food allergy PFDD meeting

When: Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021, 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET

RSVP: Register now to watch the live stream. You can join the live stream at any time during the hours listed above.

Who: Anyone who has or cares for someone with a food allergy. This meeting will give people the chance to share their experiences managing and treating food allergy with Food and Drug Administration (FDA) representatives.

The purpose of PFDD meetings is to help ensure that patients’ experiences, perspectives, needs, and priorities are represented in the drug development process. As new treatment options are developed for food allergy, it is important that the FDA and other key stakeholders – including medical product developers, health care providers, and federal partners – hear directly from patients, their families, caregivers, and patient advocates.

This meeting is an externally-led PFDD meeting, hosted by the Food Allergy Collaborative, not the FDA. The founding members of the Food Allergy Collaborative are:

  • Allergy & Asthma Network (AAN)
  • AllergyStrong
  • Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)*
  • Elijah-Alavi Foundation
  • Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT)
  • Food Allergy Fund
  • Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE)
  • Food Equality Initiative
