Past Tuesday Talks: The Fight for Food Allergy Cures
Tuesday, April 11, 2023
Presented by Seema Kumar, CEO, Cure
32 million Americans experience food allergies, and the financial costs are immense – over $20.5 billion for families with an allergic household member. That amounts to more than $4,000 per year!
Unfortunately, we do not yet know what causes this common affliction – but that is not stopping us from finding a cure! Ilana Golant, CEO of The Food Allergy Fund, shared her experiences raising a food-allergic child and how they’re pushing forward in researching treatments & vaccines to help resolve this challenge once and for all.
